Like Dan said fill the bottom of the vivarium 1/3 with the heat mat.
Hook it up to a stat too, very important, controls the heat.

You also need a thermometer, get a digital one. Infact get two, one for the hot side one for the cool side, so you can keep an eye on the temps.

roughly an 11"x11" 12W heat mat is probably a good bet for covering about 1/3 of the viv
