    Default Update and some questions


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So I will be getting a 20 galling tank and maybe two new hides along with a thermostat. I wanted to know how often do I need to change out reptile carpet. I've had thus one since June but I flipped it to the buntouched side about three weeks ago, how often do I need to change it out? Also am I using the correct forum?

    If it's decent carpet, you can wash it a few times before pitching it. If it's cheap stuff, I'd pitch it weekly.


    Also am I using the correct forum?
    You posted this in the GENERAL INFO, INTROS, AND PICS subforum, should have been in substrates.
    I moved it for you (again).
    Post in the subforum that deals with your main question/problem.

    Nope. Internal wires can become damaged when you remove a heat mat from it's original location.
