Ok, So I know I need to start at a 90 degree temp, and lower it 5 degrees a week until i reach 70 degrees, but how do I lower the temp, I just have a heat lamp with the silver dome, do I need a special heat lamp that can be adjusted?

Thanks!

I use a dim switch to lower the temp and save power on my 250W infrared lamp.
I never run it full blast indoors.
