    1- 25 watt t-rex nightglo
    1-40 watt t-rex nightglo
    1-40 watt t-rex dayglo

    All are free. I'd prefer 3 different people get these so a few people can benefit. All you need to do is pay S&H. They are used but still work. Comes with original boxes.

    Do you think the 40 watt dayglo would keep the 'tat warm in the summer when the air conditioning is running? If so, how much would you think shipping to Toronto, Canada would cost?? I would be interested if it kept them warmer over the summer months...

    depending on how long they have been used and how much shipping would be to zip code 66205, i'd be interested in one of the night glo bulbs

    Im thinking maybe 4$ to Canada. I can't recall your tank size, but I think with AC on it would keep the tank warm enough.

    If it's in the states, Priority is your best bet and it's $4.05 in a box.

    They were used only a few times for an ISO tank I had. I tested them and they all work.

    Courtastic the 25 should be enough for your tank, Im not sure Id go much higher in wattage since it's only a 15g.

    Sure just PM me...

    Its hard to say...The temp of the room will affect it..Being here, I've never used anything over a 25watt on a 10g. But we dont get cold like you do and I dont have AC. I dont know, Im sorry..Maybe someone can chime in who would know.

    Okay, really stupid question ... I was just rereading ... light bulbs ... so are these bulbs that go into aquarium tank lids? I don't have an aquarium lid, so if that's the case, I will need to pass!

    With the lights you can get reptile light ficstures if you dont have something leading to the top of your mesh lid you can just rest it on top of the mesh lid. I was told it safe aslong as they cant get to close to it and cook.

    Good idea Hermifun! My reptile lights are right on the top of my tank. I use glass fish tank lids and put the lights righton those. They work great. My E's will climb the vines and walk across the screen and sit right under the lights. The love to bask. It's so funny to see a bunch of them upside down LOL

    Yeah, I have a desk lamp I'm using right now myself, so I guess I'll stick with that for now. It's doing the trick too.

    I would say a 40/50 watt dayglo. Depends on the temps where you live tho. Those might be better for winter usage. For summer you may only need a 25 watt. I make sure to have a few bulbs in different wattages just incase I need to up the temp or lower it.
