The light system is a separate unit which sits on top of the entire length of the unit. The box is usually 12" high.
All sockets for the lamps are ceramic to withstand high temperature.

Depending on the length of the unit will determine how many lamps will be installed. The standard minimum lamps would be three. One would entail a basking Vita light that is centered within the box, and two more sockets on either side of it.

The Vita light we recommend to do the job is a 160 watt Active heat lamp. It has an advanced self ballasted system that projects UVA and UVB up to 6 feet. It also serves as a powerful basking light. further than any fluorescent lighting. and produces seven times more infrared energy.

On either side of the Vita basking lamp, we recommend a mix of "Blue & Green" 100 watt outdoor flood lights for extra heating.  These not only look great for their colors, but actually work great for night time heat sources. This is because a flood light throws heat down.

Other traditional bulbs don't have the ability to project heat down. Since these units are very tall, it is much more difficult to heat further down since heat rises. Therefore we recommend Flood lights of at least 100 watt minimum. These flood lights can be found at Home Depot.

Fluorescent lighting can be added for an additional mix of day light by using the spiral lamps that are now available which screw in like a standard light bulbs.
