I got a 50 ceramic last week and the basking spot would only go to 90 degree, so I returned it and ordered the 100 ceramic and should be getting it any day now. For the ceramic, they told me I needed to use this "Wire Cage Clamp Lamp" so I got it but doesn't it lose alot of heat with the wire cage,is there any other type??? Now would you go for the closed top on the enclosure of use a wire screen? or both Well if both of your tires are flat I don't think you'd make it across the pond. hehe Did the shallow mounting box come with it? How far away is your basking spot? Can't wait to see the pictures.
