I have an 8yr old Uro. Seems to be a happy guy until i moved from our home in a temperate climate to a more northern locale. Basically it is friggin cold. I have purchased 2 ceramic heat emitters and they got the inside temp up to a nice warm 115 and he was happy. Until one stop working. i unscrewed the bulb from it's ceramic dome fixture and there were lil chunks of stuff were it looked like it had burned the connection between bulb and fixture. My fixture is rated 250 watt and i was using a 150 watt Che. I thought maybe was a fluke so i got my guy another bulb and fixture and the same thing has happened. They are on the half of the cage that is never opened so they are not being jostled and are on a timed power strip. If anyone has any ideas as to what is happening i'd like to hear ideas. Or if anyone has a better idea as to how to heat my 75gal tank in this freezing climate please, for the love of lizards, let me know. Thanks.
