 Red Light?

Ok, I need a little advice. I am having trouble keeping the temp right in my tank. I have one UTH and getting another is out of the question for right now. I found that a heat lamp does great, keeps the temp good on the hot side and cool enough on the cool side, but Meph hates the light. So I found an infra red light that works just as well. She seems to love it, gets active, strolls around and hunts. I just want to make sure the red light isnt going to stress her out like a black like would. I will get more UTHís in the future, but will this work for now?

Thanks, J.

Bright lights and the black light bother them a lot. But, If what you have is a reptile night light that is barely visible, She will probably be ok with it. Rayna :-)

scorpion eyes arent like the eyes of you and meee, they can barely see the red if it is even visble at all. although i have never dissected and studied a scorpions optic nerves and eyes, i have observed no real difference in behavior with red lights as opposed to darkness (observed with an infrared camera)
