Default Re: Reccomend and thermostats??????

I suggest building the cage, then get whichever brand of thermostat you are going to use as well as the fixture and then when everything is done buy a 100 watt and try it to see where you have to set the dial. If you have to have it set way up high to keep it warm enough, then go to the 150. If you barely have to move the dial, then you might get away with a 60. I would definitely have the cage done before buying.
