    So i'm picking up my first royal python in a little over a weeks time, but i'm currently having some trouble with the heating of my setup. I've modified a tub to use a CHE (added aluminium mesh to part of the lid, and have the CHE placed op top). I have a thermostat connected to the CHE, with...

    Morning all, newbie to the forum and also to Snakes! I'm keeping my baby corn in the Exo Terra Large Flat Faunarium (this was recommended by my reptile shop), with a Pro Rep 7W heatmat and a Micro Climate 100 stat. I'm using Lignocel for bedding (no deeper than 1cm) and I've given Snakey the...

    Hi all I have a boa who is just over a year and about 4 foot long, I came home to day and he had managed to dislodge a vent and escaped. I'd recently moved him to a new 6 ft viv heated by ceramic nd ahs heater. Luckily found him quickly secured vent and returned. I'm now being paranoid as he...

    So, just curious so wrote this post. How many of you actually cool down the temps for royals, during breeding? Those that don't, what success do you have?

    I need some advice with my Green Anole basking temps. They're housed in a 4ft high by 2ft wide by 2ft deep reptibreeze with perspex on 3 sides. They've got a uv bulb, plenty of foliage and a 100w basking bulb. I can't get the temp of the basking spot to stay at 85-90 degrees. Would you suggest...

    I'm not getting ideal temps since moving to a glass viv, I got a new heatmat but no difference. I'm using a habistat pulse proportional stat on a 12w heat mat, is this too small a wattage for the stat to work on? I know some have a minimum wattage but I don't really understand how it all works...

    I upgraded to a larger viv a few weeks ago because my leo grew out of the old one and I didn't really have a good gradient. I ended up getting an exo terra mid low viv 60x45x30cm which is glass. I'm having trouble getting good enough temperatures, I have a heatmat under the viv hooked up to a...

    Hey guys, as title suggests, what are peoples methods for creating a suitable heat gradient in a RUB, i have polystyrene boards covered in foil tape under my whole rub and mat, this is not a effective as i had hoped, and as a result my night time temps can get a bit low at the cold end. Anybody...

    Hi All, I've read about 1000 different views on what is an acceptable night time temp for a bearded dragon vivarium. I have been monitoring mine via the minimum temp registered on my thermometers and it looks like the temp is dropping to around 65.4 overnight. Is that ok? I suspect it will...
