Am I understanding correctly that you want a way to provide less heat, so it doesn't exceed the 120F? If so, how about dropping the bulb in the heat lamp, and maybe putting in a lower watt bulb? Or, how about a (and I know money's tight) reostat. They are ready to go for about $20 at PetCo (or similar) or you can use an old extension cord and wore one up yourself with a reostat from an electronics store. Point being, that way you could turn down the heat as needed. With an accurate thermameter, you can really fine tune the temps. I've got a reostat on both my habitats, and can really adjust the temps by area.

Good luck.

PS, any problems with the humidity? Does the high heat in the tank keep things dry?

:It's Florida, it's close to summer, and we have no A.C. in our house. It's gonna get about 100+ and it'll FEEL hotter, as you all who live in Florida know. I was just thinking that if I have my uro's heat lamp on with that heat inside the house that it would exceed over 120 degrees. Could any of you suggest an alternative way of heating the uros tank instead of a heat lamp?
