I was not sure about sealing it as i never sealed a viv for a king snake that i used to have. At the minute the Royal is in a rub but going to move over to viv as the heating side of things is an issue.
Having just bought a ceramic holder and bulb and pulse stat i want to get this up and running as quickly as poss.
I bought these snakes from gumtree and to be honest they have not been cared for properly or handled hence me buying a viv. The King snake is fine and fed fine but the royal to me is looking thin and the seller could not give me an accurate age of the snakes so just want to do my best for them.
