Stick on thermometers (or any thermometers for that matter) read surface temps., only ambient temps. I have a 92 degree ambient temp on my basking area as well, and the surface temp is around 127. The 45 watt halogen is an excellent choice.

Donít go by the ambient temp. as an indicator for what the surface temps are. You could very well be to hot or not hot enough. You wonít know that unless you get the proper tools to read it. If your mom wonít order off the net then go to radio shack or a hobby store. They also sell temp guns.
