Ceramic heaters do not make a good source of daytime basking heat. If you are looking for a basking heat bulb, we suggest the Arcadia Halogen Heat Lamp or Zoo Med Repti Tuff Halogen Lamp as an alternative!


Ceramic heat emitters (CHEs) are a type of heat "bulb" that produces heat without light. This is because they produce Infrared C wavelengths, which are a longer wavelength of infrared radiation that excels at warming the air in an enclosure. Although they're not a good source of basking heat, CHEs excel at boosting the air temperature inside terrariums, particularly at nighttime.

For optimum, safest performance, use an Exo Terra Large Wire Light fixture and Exo Terra Thermostat 300w. Ceramic heat emitters are not compatible with dome lamp fixtures.
