So I am not a fan of basking lamps or direct heat from a CHE as these heating methods can dry out the shell. What I do is create a "heat zone". I set a dome lamp with a CHE directly on top of a floor tile suspended at the correct height(about 8" above top of shell) for a nice 95-100° spot directly under. It also does a nice job of fanning out around it creating a gradient. I leave it on 24/7 as well as a seedling heat mat mounted to the side. Well anyways, I'm looking for for better ideas/suggestions so I can get rid of the tile. I'm worried about a hazard if the tile ever cracks. I've been doing research on heat panels but it seems they can be finicky and are more designed for a closed chamber. Also I just saw today tgat arcadia makes a direct infrared basking bulb. Thoughts please.
