robyn, thanks for the idea and pic. i will definitely keep that in mind i wonder how i could do that with a naturalistic looking setup and still have ease of cleaning?

phldypayne, thank you as well for your advice i do have a hand made cage. will enclose a pic. this one is 4'x2'x2' it is made out of melamine and has ventilation in the back pannels. don't mind the mess. lol i need to clean it out. i had snakes in it for years. i rehomed my snakes and am looking to set up possibly a beardie in the top level and either fatties, collards, or uros in the middle. another beardie for sure though. i like leaving the bottom level for storage. i also like to have my enclosures set up and running properly well before i start critter shopping. this isn't my first go around in the reptile world, but i am always seeking to learn and come up with better/easier/more efficient ways.

anyway, i will experiment with the lights. i would like to mount them inside for the reasons you mentioned of less heat required and ect... hoping it will be less heat expelled out of the cage as well...

thanks again...

jonathan
