Hello everybody,
I wonder if infrared lights can be dangerous for the eyes of the sugars ?
What about moonlight bulbs ?
( thanks so much for reply and sorry for my english ! )

Hmm. Not sure, although I do know that overexposure to any light source in the infrared or visible spectrum can damage human eyes...

[:"blue"] Could you tell us why you are wanting to use these lights?

I personally do not use any special light for mine and they are just fine. Of course, I don't have all the lights on brightest when they are up but so far they don't seem bothered by normal light. [/]

You may want to consider something as simple as red cellophane over a fluorescent light. Many nocturnal animals are "red blind". A red filter over a dim light is used in alot of nocturnal exhibits.

Dimmer switch on my regular overhead lights works great.

Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

i use the red bulbs from the dollar store. i like them because i have 2 red, and one regular so when i go in at night time i turn off the regular, and on with the red, and they dont go right into thier pouch.
