I found this forum after doing some research into lava lamps. I ordered a cool Mathmos Astro yesterday (blue/green) from a Dutch online webshop. I hope to have it in a day or two. This is my first lava lamp. It's going on my computer desk, in the darkest corner of my bedroom. Should look pretty sweet.
So, are there any special tips or precautions that I need to know about? I've heard about not moving it while hot, and that you shouldn't place it near sunlight. Any other hints are very welcome.
