    Is coating on heat bulbs necessary?

    Hey everyone I was searching around, and there are plenty of other lighting threads but I didn't want to bring one back from the grave to ask this. Basically I now use the zoo med blue day light 60w bulbs and I know a lot of people use their normal house bulbs (incandescent bulb). My...

    Light Bulb Types

    So I finally decided I'm getting a chameleon (yay! :) ) and I have started setting up the enclosure (will post pics when finished) but I have a couple questions about lighting.

    Montane/submontane Basking Temps?

    Perhaps I have overlooked some information somewhere, but I am having a hard time deciding on what is an appropriate basking temp for some of the montane/submontane taxa (Trioceros, Kinyongia, etc). I have been running 40 watt tube incandescents (Sun Glo Bulbs) in 12x12x18, 18x18x24, and...
