Another question... I'm building a 4 x 3 x 2 for my basilisk... and I want some plants etc in there im just wondering how could this be heated ? obv basking spot and Uv but could I use a heat mat on the back of the viv ? just wondering how people with planted vivs get the heat to be around 85 ?

heat mats are useless for large vivs. my viv is around the same size as yours (its not an adults it? 4x3x2 is probably a little small if they are) and i use a single 150W ceramic bulb in one corner and that easily keeps the viv around 82-88°F (depending on what i set it at) on a pulse stat. there are also 2 x 100W basking spot bulbs in there on dimmers to get the 92°F basking sites. this is the easiest way to acheive the temps tho, and it can take care of night time temperature too.

5 x 4 x 2 with water would be alright i reckon. mines for water dragons and theyre only babies at present. basilisks have pretty similar requirements though and they like their climbing space and plenty of deep water.
