Re: Indoor enclosure

On Tiny's table I have no way of hanging it up that high! Would a duo heat/light bulb be better hanging down in a ceramic holder? If so what bulb is best...or they do a duo lamp holder for 2 separate bulbs, would that be better? :geek:

Re: Indoor enclosure

No unfortunately it's just wall, 1 door on the side at the other end but it's always open. He has run of the house all day and garden (weather permitting) so he's not in there all the time.
Big Ty for all your advice, so glad I found you guys :geek:
