The new cage will have the bulbs in the insides. I bought these nice mounting sockets at Lowes that is going to work great and help phantom all the wires.

The monsoon only turns on for 5 mins every 5 hours. It keeps things just right for now, reason I did it because if I get called out and I am not home to spray, I don't have to worry the monsoon will take care of it for me. My girlfriend can feed it, i just dont trust her with my mister :P.

The megarays are 50.00 each BUT the one I am using is from my beareded dragon cage. After a year to year and a half the UV dims and they need to be replaced but they still put out amazing heat after that year. So I get extended use out of the bulbs. This one I am using is about 3 years old now. They seem to never burn out. That is why I have wire around the bulb though because per infred heat gun, it says 400 degree for the bulbs surface temp. I like it though because the bulb can make a 140 degree hotspot from a good distance away and the lizard still cant burn itself due to the wire.

The new cage won't have these megas rays in it though because I think it will make the inside ambient temp way too much having the bulb inside the cage. I found some 75watt floodlights on sale the other day and bought one to test it. I think these will work well in the new cage if I makea line of a few of them on the basking spot.
