I am getting a female 09 hatchling albino royal, excited but sad to have to see my boas and brbs go :-(
I am going to keep her in a rub on a heat mat with a stat.

1. what size rub? should i get a 5litre shallow or 9litre taller?
2. should i have hide caves or is newspaper and shallow rub adequate?
3. should i get a temp stat or pulse?
4. thinking of getting 17x11 habistat mat, think there 20w will this get the 92degree basking spot wanted? or will i need higher powered mat?
5. how many air holes should i drill? evenly over the hole of the top or like how a viv is on the side of the tub and do a few either side at the top?

and im getting a habistat stat as ive always used them and never had problems with them!

Thanks for any advice :2thumb:

hi hun am sooo jealous!!!! albino royal on top of my wish list!!

my 09 royal is in a 9l rub.
she is on kitchen roll as substrate, has loo roll hides, piece of rock for shedding and a plastic plant and mouse food bowl for water. she loves the loo rolls to hide in.
my heat mat is 11x 12 and is on a mat stat.
there is a good sticky about setting up a rub which i used when i did my 1st one.
hope this helps, enjoy your baby!!!
