umm looks good to me, but make sure u dnt leave the top of by accident:lol2: Also, If your thermostat has a light senore, like mine does (its called magic eye) thean make sure its pointing at a window or other light source =] The reason why hes probably avoiding the 2nd hide isnt the moss, its the fact that he feels more comfortable in the 1st one and he just has to make a choice - which is a bad thing - get him 2 identical hides so he chooses between them based on temp not on comfort! As for the thermostat i dunno tbh, Ive had mine set by someone else, And i use a IR lamp for heat anyway...

alsom, how old is he, cos that seems a bit too big actually... And id place the hides in the same line horizontaly if u get what i mean, then the water bowl could go in front of the one on cool side...

The size is fine - as long as it has enough snug hides then I can't see it causing any problems personally. It's not a massively big tub. You could add a fake plant to take up some space if you personally think that the tub is too big for your royal once it's stretched out.

You need to get a couple of digital thermometers - you might aswell not use any if you have those exo terra dial ones. They measure air temp.. and not very well. And if you're using a heat mat, then you need to be measuring the surface temps by placing the probe from digital thermometers in the cool and hot end of the tub. : victory:

Yep that's right, if he's just over the length of the tub then it should be fine.

Where is your heat mat placed..? Can't see it in the pics : victory:

That's fine :) as long as it covers the width of the tub, and covers 1/3 of the bottom then that'll be alright.

Have you got the temps sorted now?
