Default What disenfectant?

Hi guys,

I'm new to all of this, just bought 2 baby Corn Snakes last week (pics are in the snake section under Corn pics thread). What is a safe disenfectant to use on the tank they are in? Also i have their records from hatching & they have been fed one small Pinkie every 7 days. Is this enough or should they move up to slightly bigger ones or even 2 small ones per feed? They are about 14" & 16" in length. Sorry for all the questions but like i said it's the first time i've keep Snakes, although i've wanted them for many years .


Thanks,

Mel xxx

u can use a range of reptile disenfectants which normally come a in spray and u just let soak in such as bea clean BeaClean - Reptile Disinfectant : Reptile Shop, The Shop for Reptiles! ( THIS IS WAT I USE ) or u can buy stronger stuff which u mix with water

hope this helps

BeaClean is what I use with my leo so I assume it would do for your snakes too.

Hi Madmonk,

Where do you buy your stuff from (i'm in Pompey, so near enough to go to your supplier)? I have some Vanodine which i use for the Rabbit's feed bowls etc.. would this be ok to use (it's iodine based)?

Thanks for replies,

Mel xxx
