Default How do I attach my thermostat to a CHE?

I have a zoomed 100 watt CHE and a zoomed wire holder, how do I attach a zilla thermostat to it?

You plug the wire holder into the thermostat. Then plug the thermostat into the wall. You want to put the temperature probe from the thermostat in the cage and set it to the right temperature.

I'd trade out the wire holder for a different type of lamp. The wire holder will protect you from accidentally touching the CHE and getting burned, but it won't radiate the heat down to your hedgie. A dome lamp like this http://www.bigappleherp.com/Zoo-Med-...=2&category=22 would work better.

And yeah, like HG519 said, you'll screw the CHE into the dome lamp, flip the switch on, plug that into the thermostat, set thermostat to a good temp (like maybe 76F), put the probe into hedgie's cage in a place that hedgie won't just snuggle up to it but is still close to where hedgie is (ie, not like a foot above the floor of the cage), and plug the thermostat into the wall.
