I would turn it on as soon as you get up and then it would be ok to leave it off when ur at school then turn it back on as soon as you get home. I clip mine on to the side and make sure the ceramic part (where it gets hot) doesnt touch the side. That works very well for me. I have AIM (aol IM) and YIM (yahoo IM). My sn for Aim is miskittlegrl and for yahoo its iluv_ny4ever. Im on right now if you wanna talk. I have been keeping russians for 4 years and I love them so much. I learned all I have so far from the yahoo group that is at the link below. Good luck :)

:I go to school at 8 am and get back at 2 pm, is it ok if i just turn on the lamp when i am home and awake? and just leave near window wen im not home or sleeping? Also, how do u mount a lamp on a rubbermaid? or do u use a stand? cagrlalwys, do u have any instant messengers? it sounds like u know alot, id like to chat

::hey again hehe. I answered your heat question. You should have a heat lamp. The hot spot should be around 95F and the cool spot should be around 70F or so. Dont worry about it melting the plastic. As long as it isnt touching the plastic it wont hurt it at all. I have one and mine hasnt burned or melted any of the plastic. Just keep it a little bit away from the edge and it will be fine. Also you could try LLLreptile. I am pretty sure they are in CA. To go the link below and you can look at the russians. Good luck :)
