Basking lights


New Member
I have seen some people on here like to use halogen lights for basking. Right now i have a brooder lamp i picked up from home depot and it keeps my little veiled at a comfy 80-85 degrees in his basking spot. (he is about 6-7 months old now). What wattage and how far away from the basking spot are the halogen lights placed? What kind of temperatures can you get from the halogen lights?
I use a 45 watt. It really depends on how close your branch is or how high up you hang the light as far as what the temp will be at the basking spot.
