    I have never offered night heat ,I mainly keep dragons who come from the desert where temps go from stinking hot in the day to freezing cold at night,it's best to keep your reptiles in similar conditions as what they would get in the wild,but I have a couple of juvenile pythons who are getting night time heat ATM to try and grow them up

    yes,inside your house it doesn't usually get below about 15 degrees,which is above the outside temps in the wild so your pets are better off than their wild cousins

    I am in Sydney so if you come from colder climates you might need to make some adjustments,but generally no need for night heat

    When living in Adelaide, we only provided night time heat to hatchling pythons, and lizards in their first winter, if bought as hatchling. Nights can get pretty cold.

    I'm not sure I really want to get into this but why the lol? Are you suggesting that this was a joke?
    There are lots of past posts/discussions on the subject in the forums if you would like to take time to search the subject.

    I'd like to get rid of the bulky basking globe. Are halogens any better? I also have a rain kit in the enclosure up the other end from the globe. If a halogen is better would a spec or two of water ruin it?
