    Question How to Best Remove a UTH? (NOT Trying to Reuse It)


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I tried finding some information about this but I can't seem to find a solid answer. The UTH that came with Astara's enclosure is clearly too small (it covers maybe 1/5th to 1/4th of the tank) and I plan to get a new one. However, I've never removed one before and I have no idea the best way to go about it.

    One source I found, people were discussing how to do it without breaking the internal heating element, so it was a mix of suggestions of Goo Gone and spatulas, and another source was a mix of how they can't get them off or that they can peel them off incredibly easy.

    I just want to know what I should expect! I'd like to be able to remove it without having to empty out the entire enclosure, I'd rather just be able to pick it up on one end and peel the UTH off.

    Yes! Pick up the enclosure and peel it off! No problem.

    I actually went to do it earlier today and it was super easy!

    ...because I didn't notice that the owner of the leopard gecko had TAPED THE UTH onto the bottom of it the tank... with packing tape.

    Thank you though!
