Should anyone be interested in globes for their hatchery, check out this website : http://www.vaucluse-aps.com.au they have the ceramic globes at a very good price also the Phillips one, which I have used also at a good price.

I find that these globes give off a much better heat and work out cheaper than the ordinary globe in the long run...............

Hey Trev, can I ask something?
I'm just wondering how long the ceramic globes last, and how reliable they are compared to infra red and/or ordinary incandescent globes? Are they really solid and last ages?
cheers
Jennie

Candler,

Yes they do. I bought 2 about 3 or 4 years ago, they are still going.
