Yea I use a 15 watt bulb.

The 50 - 100 one might cause too much heat unless it's kept a good distance from your terrarium.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Like Silven said, that 50-100 watt incandescent bulbs give off alot of heat and must be kept away from the terrarium. I use a small compact flourescent bulb-12 watt I think, screwed into a regulr lamp outlet and place the right on top of the terrarium. The flourescent bulbs give off a bluer spectrum which is just what cubies like for pinning.
