I think there are some that are as low as 1.5 watts but that'll probably be much too low. I'd look around at a store and see what they have. It might take some trial and error unfortunately. I'd probably look for one that's about half of what you currently have as a place to start.
I'll try with a 30 watt then? Or maybe it's a 20 Watt? Or a wattage that's half of 75? Which is better?
either should be fine. Whatever you see at the store that will fit your fixture. You might even be able to buy a thermostat that can turn your bulb off and on to regulate the temperature for you. I saw some on ebay for $15-20. Some for a lot more too though. I saw one called "heat Mat Lamp Incubator Aquarium Digital Thermostat for Reptile Lizard Snake" on ebay that would work well. The only problem with it is that it doesn't plug into a standard outlet. Maybe you can get converters too? They're also in Celsius, which is a little inconvenient if you use Fahrenheit but not awful.
