That's impossible to say since there are variables that can come into play. Is the cage near a window where the sun comes through? Floor vents close by? Near a front door that gets opened and closed a lot? You're best bet is just to purchases a couple of wattages...and the ones that don't work...use them for the house...or return them. In the big 6'x8'x4' CBD cage I use 150W, 75 gal. a 60W and the 50 gal. a 40W through the glass. You just have to play with them...but I would start with at least a 60W.
You don't think this would burn through the mesh? See this is why I need to bump my new enclosure building date up. The 100 watt I used to use left red markings on the mesh. I doubt it would burn it but I really don't know. I guess I will just have to start working on the new enclosure. At the same time get a couple 100 watts.
