I'm setting up a desert hairy enclosure and was wondering what would be the best bulb to use and how many watts the heat bulb should be for a 10 gal tank..

75watts is what I use.

Ceramic would be costlier but better since they last way longer.

It depends how close you keep the bulb to the scorpions.
I keep mine pretty close.

I live in the UK and I use a 25 watt bulb.

I have all my red bulbs linked to dimmers. I have a seperate dimmer for each tank. This means that I can turn the bulbs up or down which also controls different temperature levels.

If your room is at least 75 degrees than I wouldn't worry about it. They spend most of their time in their burrows anyways.

Dimmers are awesome! I use one for my Ball Python. Definitely a handy little gizmo to have Smile
