Question Ceramic Heat Lamp??

So I'm about to get a hedgehog and I've been reading reviews about ceramic heat lamps and heat lamps and I have no idea what to buy. The ceramic heat lamp I bought ( BYB - 150W 110V Ceramic Infrared Heat Emitter Brooder Coop Pet Infrared Lamp Bulb, Black ) needs a lamp that can hold 150W or more, and all the lamps that I've looked at melt. What should I buy?? Could someone send what they bought??

In my experience, a brooder lamp won't work. You need a lamp with a ceramic socket that is rated for CHE use.

Lamp, though an 10" is better for more heat distribution:

Thermostat to control temp:

A ceramic heat emitter bulb (that does not emit light), similar to this:

I'm not sure about the "infrared" part, (mine have been plain, Zilla brand "ceramic heat emitters") but as long as it does not emit light of any kind (even a glowing red hue when turned on), I would think it would work. You just don't want a light of any kind at night for your hedgehog, as it can disrupt their nocturnal habits.

Anyone else's thoughts?

I took a look at that link and it doesn't mention anything about light being admitted, but I'm not really sure whether it does or it doesn't. You should post it as a question so that people who do own it can respond and give an accurate answer. Just to make sure!
