Review 1 for Zilla Mini Halogen Reptile Dome Heat Lamp
Great little heat lamp
PostedMarch 5, 2013
from Pasadena, Tx.
Bought this for my young ball pythons cage. I needed to be able to focus a small amount of heat to a basking area in his terrarium w/o adding a substancial amount of heat to the entire enclosure and this fixture achieves that easily. I've tried a few other basking bulbs but they all added to much extra heat to the ambient air temp. With this fixture using the 25w night red bulb, I maintain a basking are temp of ~95* but the rest of his terrarium stays at 85* +/- 1. And at nght it allowes the temp drop he needs... 76-78*. As for the set-up, no parts were missing and it was fast and easy to install. The fixture come w/ 2 ways to mount it, 1st- a ring w/ 3 springs attached to it can be slid down the cord and seats arround the base of the socket. then the springs can be pulled snug and attatched to a screen top (my set-up) by simply hooking it through the screen. 2nd- For tanks that have a low screen top, they include 3 steel "legs" that can be attatched to the fixture via screws to raise the level of the lamp and or keep it from sitting directly on the screen. They raise the lamp 4". In addition to all that, it's a small fixture. About 4" dia. and 3.5 " tall, so it doesn't take up alot of space on top of the terrarium or stick-out like a sore thumb.
I would recommend this to a friend!
Warms up his basking shelf and hide just right w/o heating up the rest of the enclosure.
Keeps his shelf toasty warm and attaches secure and easily.
