Ok, a ceramic bulb is the same thing as a ceramic heat emitter, at least I'm pretty sure . And as long as you dont set it directly on the plastic it won't melt anything, but you may want to get a dimmer to plug it into. You can get dimmers at any hardware store for like 6 bucks and the light fixture plugs right into it. Just make sure you get a metal or ceramic fixture for any bulbs that are meant to put off high heat.

Thanks Nancy, I should have mentioned that we aren't still using the ones from 12 years ago..I didn't even think to say that. I agree about the oil filled ones..I love them and don't trust any other kind.

Actually a thermostatic controller works better than a dimmer or rheostat. You set it to the desired temperature and it keeps the environment at that temperature....just like in your house.

I'll have to try that with my Dragons' cages. right now I'm constantly having to turn it off and monitor the temps, cause they are in the same room as my hedgie and it's pretty warm in there.
