I'm thinking it depends on the size of the cage, but I don't really know =/

I'd like to know the answer to this too. Anyone?

100 watts is plenty, you could even use a 60 watt. The second link is the better item in my opinion.

So I think I am going to do the 100 Watts... I think that is good...

One more question! I am trying to firgure out what cage I want to get. I thought about plexi glass, and I decided against it. I might do a C&C cage, but I was also thinking of making it out of PCV plastic. My dad is a designer so he has lots of it. It can bend when really hot, so I can heat it and bend it into shapes I want, and I might make a loft... But I would make it have a LOT of venlation (sp?)!

Any draw backs to using PCV plastic?

You need to decide on your cage before you get a heat emitter. Not all cages are suitable for heat emitters.

I know. It's between the C&C cage, and the pCV Plastic.

the PVC cage would have to be heated the same as a plastic bin....no heat emitter, heat emitter can ONLY be used safely on wire cages, C&C cages
