House hold lights

We almost all use the regular house bulbs (not the coil energy efficient ones) for basking.

But they don't take the place of UVB.

you still need two bulbs.

Ok cool that will save me a lot of money,do you use 60 watt?

Depends on what temp you're trying to reach, and on the room temperature itself. I used 75 in the winter and 60 in the summer to get 82. Different light fixtures change things too. You'll have to experiment:)

Id keep temps around 85ish to maybe 88ish.

Youll have to play with diff bulbs to kep temps correct.

My adult males use 100Watts, but my adult female used a 75 watt,
