    The pet store will have a reptile thermostat similar to ones use for seedling heat mats. You can plug any low amperage device right into it. You can also get a ceramic heater that is like a light bulb, just no light. I think the reptile department is going to be a good place to start.

    You can use a single pole line voltage thermostat used for baseboard heaters. Or you can find a plug in thermostat at a hardware store, just hook your light up to it, set it for temperature and your off. I'm sure some fellow at the store can help when you explain what your doing. Hope this helped ~ BCbuddy
