Lighting for Cage

1636 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Hedgiepets
I was wondering if I could get some suggesting for cage lighting...I usually leave a lamp on in the living room, but lately my son has turned it off on his way to school. (I leave for work earlier) I am wondering if it would just be easier to have another ceramic lamp with a heating light, and then change it to a ceramic heater for the night time. Will it hurt having the direct light on his cage, or just I just ensure that the light is left on.

Thank You

thanx for the idea...I just wasnt to sure if the light had to be directly on his cage, or just in the room. I might fight a desk lamp to place on the book stand near him.

Thanx again
I have a wire cage top. It is 40 inches in length. I do have a ceramic heater that keeps the temp around 75-77 F. I have the thermoste probe tucked in behind his hideout which is in the center of the cage. I just was unsure if I had to have a light right on his cage, do not want to blind him at all, or just a light on in the general room.

Thanx for all the advice.
