I'm going to be using a pulse thermostat and ceramic heat bulb to, so i have got that sorted ok.

Im sure one of you lovely people can help me , always feel a little cheeky asking for help and advice, i usually do things by trial and error til i get it right, but this is different cause i dont want to harm the python.

the set up is fine, you dont need a mat with a ceramic, just make sure the ceramic has a guard and a puls or dimmer stat, you can pick up digital thermometer's off ebay for less than a fiver, ceramics are great as long as you have plenty of ventalation as they can dry the air
