    Default Incandescent bulbs?

    Ive recently moved my bullfrog to a bigger tank and the heatmat doesnt get up to the required temperature. Whats the best way to boost the temperature? Are incandescent bulbs suitable?
    Thanks

You will still need a way to keep you pet away from and off of the heater, but a bit of work with some hardware cloth or the like will do the trick.

    I agree, picking shards of glass out of plants and water after accidentaly splashing a bulb taught me the hard way.
