    Can anyone help me or fill me in on what might have happened to my light in my viv.I was misting my monitors cage and all of a sudden i think maybe some of the water might have hit the heat lamp bulb and BOOM and a loud cracking noise and i see a big smoke cloud and the bulb is shattered. HELP PLEASE

    Yep, hot glass + cold water= POP.

    You just answered your own question.
    Very hot bulbs and water = glass every where.
    I would remove your monitor and strip down the viv, throw out the subsrate as the glass gets every where. I know as I have done the same thing a long time ago.
    All part of the rep learning curve lol.

    If your enclosure is large enough for your monitor there must be an area away from the heat lamp- mist there.
