Thanks - that's about half the price of the 60w I bought and more than twice the price of the 100w lol (live and learn with tortoises eh!?)
The fitting here is a bayonett but I know you can get something to convert bayonet to screw-in if they don't do this as a bayonet that is.
Many thanks!!!!!!


http://cgi.ebay.co.u...=item19c28e4a4f is this the sort of thing you mean? they might sell them at a local b&q just make sure it can take up to 100w wink.gif I've not seen the bulbs in a bayonet and had a quick search and found nothing x

I will look, thanks loads!

This is the type of adapter I had in mind. It's a shame but the tortoise table I bought has a bayonet fitting rather than screw-in and I soon discovered the screw-in would have been better or easier re finding bulbs. I'm sure the bulb posted earlier is what I have in 60w. I bought it from a pet shop. I have heard since that any reflector spotlight is ok so I bought the 100w in B&Q (2 for 2!) xx

He is thanks :-)

Odd about the bulbs, at least you can use them elsewhere though. xx
