Our Boas have all been in 50L RUBs up to about 1 year, then moved straight into a 6x2 heated with a ceramic.

However you decide to heat it, make sure you buy a thermostat and a digital thermometer, and if you decide on a ceramic, make sure you have a guard.

I found ours enjoyed climbing, so a shelf/ledge of branches are good additions, as well as fake plants.
Make sure you have at least 2 hides, one at the hot end one at the cold end, if you can fit more, then go for it.
