PostSubject: question about tank tops and bulbs   4/19/2012, 7:53 pm

i recently got 10 gallon tank to hold two emporer scorpions the tank has a fish tank style hood/light that can hold two bulbs at 25 watts max each. first i would like to know if this hood is fine to use and if it is what kind of light bulbs should i get . i was thinking to get some form of the red reptile bulbs just for the heat not the light just not sure which one is better or if i need a specific one.

i dont have the scorpions yet i want to get everything set up first and let it stay empty for a week to make sure i have the heat and humidity right first then i can make adjustments from there if its not optimal '
any and all info or opinions is appreciated.thanks

I use a 10 gallon with a similar hood. It takes two 25watt slim bulbs, works great for heat ( i use infared) I have some with one bulb in it too still stays pretty warm. The tank heats up pretty well too and holds humidity. There was a 3 inch hole or so in the back where a filter would go but I hot glued a piece of window screen over it works fine. For a smaller specimen (striped devils) I used the screen to cover the hole and hot glued a bead on the back covering any crack. If you're not doing a background though dont worry too much about the top.
