    Default Heat mat question


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello!
    I am going to upgrade my AFT from his current 10 gallon tank to a 20 gallon long. On my leopard geckos 20 L I use an ultratherm 11 x 17 but the place I got it from no longer carries them and shipping is expensive for the other websites Iíve checked that have them in stock. The company ipower has an 18 x 8 and a 12 x 8 heat mat for sale (the products Iíve gotten from them in the past have worked very well), the heat mat will of course be connected to a working thermostat that I already have.
    So, which size should I get? Or would you recommend any other heat mats for my size tank on amazon?
    -extra question-
    I also want to use eco earth for my geckos substrate to help keep humidity up. He refuses to eat any big that isnít a cricket and isnít running so would it be safe to feed him on eco earth?
    Thank you!

    I like Zoomed heat cable because you can attach it and them move it somewhere else if you change enclosures. You would need the 14' or 25' size. I have kept all my fat tails and continue to keep my gargs and crested geckos on eco earth and no one has ever had a problem eating crickets with that substrate.

    Have you tried Reptile Basics or the Reptile Supply Company (in Lodi, Callifornia) for the 11 x 17 Ultratherm?

    Reptile Basics: (336-308-5767) also carries Ultratherm heat mats [11 x 17 inches = $22]
