You need a matstat, cost around £20 from any reptile supplier. As far as which mat, it really depends on the size of the tub really. Make sure the mat only covers a third of the floor space. If you use a mat which is bigger, you are wasting money on heating it, although they only cost pennies to run anyway.
You will only need a timer if you are using artificial lighting, which for royals are not needed. All they are is a 24 hour time plug, you can pick them up for a few quid at Tescos, B & Q etc.
