    I imagine that any of them will get to 30C. The issue is how much of the underside of the enclosure do you want to heat. Prevailing wisdom says 1/2 to 1/3 of the floor area, though I have been known to do less. It's important that you get a thermostat so the heat doesn't get above 30C.

    None at the moment, just setting up. Making sure everything works fine.
