Hey if you are thinking of a merc vapor I would go with the big apple one, I think they are more durable. They ship the same day as the order and usually get to me in 2-3 days, but I am in MA. Another Key pickup is a 10" heat dome, these will hold the mercury bulbs, standard 8-8.5" don't hold merc vapors. Another key thing to point out is that merc vapors put out less heat, I use as a rule of thumb this. If I am using a standard 60 watt basking bulb I use a 100 watt merc vapor. If I am using a 100 watt standard basking bulb I use a 160 watt merc vapor. These also last for a year not 6 months. Oh and another thing that I would recomend is get a fecal done. Suprised no one else said it. If a dragon stops eating it could have internal parasites outbreak. This reduces their appetite. Hope all works out well.

Derek
