    Just curious. I've heard that you can use a regular buy-at-walmart incandescent bulb for heat. Is that true?

    Yes they will produce heat, but it really depends on what you are heating!

    I'm heating a Bearded Dragon but the enclosure is only 12"t by 36w by 18d, just like my other enclosure. Which has a 60w incandescent Zoo Med bulb and is keeping the temp perfectly. I have a a basking bulb on the other end which adds ambient heat.

    Basking bulb should be used for basking spots. I'm confused why you have a basking bulb on your 'cool' side...did I read that right? Yes, Zoo Med sells incandescent bulbs - they are the same as any other brand of regular light bulb. If you want light without heat, fluorescent bulbs; heat and light - incandescent; heat without light - ceramic heat emitter.
