What type of light would be good for heat/light source?
    #1663335 - 06/26/03 03:07 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I do not want an overhead worklamp like I'm using over my current terranium. I would like something smaller, like a fish lamp inside or right outside. This light would also be on 24/7 as it would be my heat source. So...

1) Something small
2) Something that doesn't consume alot of energy

What do you guys use now? The only reason I cannot use my overhead lamps is because I'm limited on space.

wouldn't prolly use light as a heat source unless you hook it up to an incubator thermostat. go with a small florescent

I am using a 7 watt incadesent "night light" from the dollar store, and it seems to be doing the job nicely. It does produce a little heat too if that's what you like.

I thought, according to christianity, "god" made all plants/animals on the earth. If that's the case, why are some plants illegal in a nation allegedly ruled "under god"? Did "god" make a mistake? Why are pharmaceuticals, that are more toxic and harmful than most illegal plants, legal?
