I am preparing to get a ball python. I want to build a wooden vivarium for it instead of a glass tank. i have tried to research heat tape but I can’t find any answers, plus it looks very complicated and expensive. So, could I give belly heat by putting A heat mat in between two tiles? It needs...
I'm getting a corn snake soon, and I still don't know if it's better to get a heat lamp or a heat mat. I am going to be using UVB with my corn snake, but I don't know if there are benefits of using a heat mat over a heat lamp or vice versa.
So I got an adjustable heat pad for my leopard geckos and I have a probe thermostat set up that tells me how hot the heat pad is and the heat pad temperature kept going down to 70 and up to 110 without me changing it. I had it set at 89-90 degrees Fahrenheit. But it kept a going down and up so I...
Hello! I’m somewhat new to owning GALS. My mother had some when I was much younger, but hers since passed away and she has shared her love of creatures with me. I had some queries about how I should set my tank up for my snails. I’ve put the thermostat on the same side as the heat mat (which is...
We have been keeping Royals for 13 or so years.

Basking area consists of ceramic lamp in middle of viv.
Cold end nothing.
Hot end, HabiStat heat mat (carbon impregnated glass cloth) 11" x 11" 14W...
I have a new set up for American Green Tree Frog but the 12w heat mat I purchased is now out of stock. They have the 25w version in stock but I am concerned this could be too powerful in some way and cause injury.
Obviously I will have a thermostat in place for overall temperature. My...
I got a new vivarium which is 34 inches long and I bought a new heat mat but it was the wrong size which was 29 inches long so is it safe to fold the heat mat in half with a hot side facing the bottom of the vivarium and one facing up which would be the one that would heat the gecko?
I have a 3yr old corn snake, which we are moving to a new 3ft viv - Terapod 36" Black Pro Vivarium
In the previous, smaller viv we've just used a heat mat, but I've been reading up about using the heat mat at one end and a basking lamp at the other (on a timer).
I've been going...

Hi! Does anyone know whether or not a heat mat glued to the bottom of a glass terrarium can be removed and re-attached? I'm planning to make a couple of upgrades in the near future and some of those include changing the heat source. Are the mats salvageable? They're all from Exo Terra.
Hi, want to get everything right when I get a leo. if I put a leopard gecko in a wooden vivarium, do I put the heat mat under the Viv or in the Viv under the substrate? Have seen both views on this, so abit confused:hmm:
Hey guys, I've just set up my first vivarium and got myself a young ball python :2thumb:
I was just wondering if there's a minimum depth of Aspen you would have in your vivarium? I have a head pad, which has a hide over the top of it, and I just want to make sure the Aspen is deep enough so...
