    Okay I just noticed that having a dimmer on my lamps is causing a humming noise.
    This is in the not so new anymore habitat I'm creating.
    Anyone know how to get rid of it?
    Different dimmer or different bulb maybe?

    Different blub. It has to do with the amount electricity flowing through it.

    I do need a large bulb. Probably because floods have such a large filament, it makes it worse.
    Some research I found says try a better dimmer, that the rotary ones cause the worst buzzing.
    Of course the best dimmers are $160.

    I will though try a halogen bulb to see if it is better tonight.
