In Reply to: I use ZooMed PowerSuns exclusively..... posted by jiffypop on April 18, 2003 at 04:58:05:
:160 watt floods. With the Tegus I use them at a distance of about 15 inches to get the heat required. I have had a couple of them burn out or refuse to light but ZooMed's warranty is for a year. I send the bulbs back and they send a replacement. Over all I'm very happy with their performance. With rescue iguanas that are suffering from MBD they are very usefull and speed recovery and they also work well in freeroaming situations.
I just bought 3 more Powersun 160 watt from Reptile direct for like 36.95. I'm trying a Capture the Sun from Big Apple Herp. but so far I don't like it for my tegu. I thought it would put more heat out than the powersun but I don't see that happening. I also have it recessed in the cage and it keeps over heating and turning off. Its a saftey feature. At about 18in. I'm only getting temps of 92 so today we change back to the PowerSun. I think the Capture the Sun bulb will work well for my beardies at about 12 inches. Thats as close as their suppose to get to your animal.
Just thought I share.
