Hi Just wanted to ask if i need to do anything my electricity is going to be turned off next month for up to 6 hours, (for repairs) i have 2 corns 1 adult 1 hatchling. Do i need to get anything to help keep the temp in the tank?

Thanks

if its just for six hours they should be fine, dont feed them the day before though, they will need the heat to digest,you can get heat packs or heat blocks, not sure what they are called, or you could use a hot water bottle wrapped up so they dont get too hot.

Or you could use plastic bottles of warm water, wrapped in a tea towel or something for insulation.
Heat pads (as in the handwarmer thingys) can get pretty hot so if you use them best to put them in a small plastic tub so the snake can't get too close.

If you've got time before the leccie goes off to get the viv upto full temp, then as long as you don't open the doors then the heat should stay in for some time. Also as said above, trying to keep the room temp up will help loads. :D
