    Can You Use Flood Lights for Heat???

    I am tired of these bulbs not working and i'm throwing money out the window. I've done everything to avoid any contact with water and they still blow out. Can I use a 100W flood light does it give off enough heat? I can't understand how they are water dragons and need so much humidity but in order to get that humidity i need to spray the cage a least once a day so flood lights do they work because they are water proof.

    You can use them, and they will give off heat. Just watch your thermometer to make sure it's enough heat, or not too much heat. Still no luck with keeping bulbs alive?

    My experience with the pet store bulbs was similarly disappointing. Thats why I switched over to Ceramic Heat Emitter's.
    While the flood lights may be better made and will be fine for heating, if you hit a hot bulb with water it is going to pop. But high humidity alone should not cause it.

    I'm going to try those turtle splash proof 90w bulbs and see if that works these bulbs are a pain in the rear end the tank is great condition but the bulbs are my problem. If the splash proof bulbs don't work I'll try floods.
