I can't really say there is a best, but maybe you should bump up the wattage. How big is the cage? If the cage is really big it is best to have more than one heat lamp. You should connect the heat lamps to a thermostat. The thermostat helps regulate the temperature. Make sure the che does not emit light. A best place to put the hedgie is where the draft won't hit the cage. Natural light is not a sufficient light source. You need to give your hedgie 12-14 hours of light daily. Feel free to use ceiling light, lamps, etc as a source of light.
