crucial times
    #1347206 - 03/02/03 04:57 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

hey all,

within the week my friend will be birthing some cakes, his setup has been running and he has been taking notes as to how it has been performing. he was using a 100w light mounted above terrarium (about 10 or 11 inches) and has noticed a considerable rise intemps wile light is on. he has decreasded the light to a 40 watt. think this will take care of his problem?

also he was wondering if when the light comes on, and the temp rises if this is a real bad thing. he keeps it at about 75 degrees, and when the light comes on it is it hits about 80 for a half hour then goes off, and it cools back to 75.

and lastly, do you think running the light 2 times a day for a half hour is enough light?

thanks in advance, i have been mulling these problems over and have been unable to come to any concrete answers.

40 watts should be fine... you might be able to get away with going up to 60. A raise in temp is fine as long as it's not straying too far over 85. 30 mins of light 2 times a day is pleanty. . . some people would argue that it's not but I know some people who only provide their casings with 15 mins of light a day and things work out great for them.
