You do not need the type of fixture Robert and I are talking about. Not with those skinks. They do not take the amount of heat monitors do. So its much easier to heat smaller areas, with many of the conventional means.
your big cage, just replace the fixtures from time to time, and with better quality if you can find them. Or just replace the ones you have.
After that, you may want to think about heating the room with a heater, and use fewer lites. We have talked about such things. Like radiator electric heaters. Inexpensive, and are safe. Not sure it will be cheaper. For instance, low is 900 watts, and high is 1500 watts, that is one lot of lite bulbs. Depending on the wattage your using.
