    Hey guys

    currently building a new enclosure for my Bredli, it will be 1500L x 550W x 650H it will be melamine with a glass sliding door. I want to use a heat radiator with a dimming thermostats but not sure on what size to get. is an 80w panel going to do the job? The smaller the better as i want a good head gradient.

    thanks

    I haven't bought one for a few years but if it's the ProHerp ones you're looking at, they had a reputation for being very responsive and helpful with this sort of question.
    Having said that, if you get the basking spot close enough, a 40W panel will do the job. That's all I use for adult Carpets.

    I run 80w in some of my BHP enclosures which are 6ft x 2ft x 2ft. (Or 1800 x 600 x 600 for you modern people)
    They are awesome.

    You can get from herpshop at a great price. (The Pro-Herp site has been down a while and the guys have not been contactable for some reason)
