Re: Problems with stable humidity with UV light

Has anyone tried using just the heat mats and plain uv bulbs that give of no heat? That's what I was thinking of trying.

All of my animals have either come from the street, were born from a mom we got off the street, or being given away except for my dog. I paid for him because the la...
