I just need a constant source if warmth, with not too high of temperature. Please tell me if a 50 watt is about right, or should I go to around 35 watt, or not do this at all?
I think what you are talking about in the cage is a thermometer, a thermostat will regulate what the temperature is suppose to be at and keep it at that level consistently.
