    Default Cabinet liner as substrate


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So currently my leopard gecko is on ceramic tiles. I am a person who likes to re-design things frequently and I'm getting tired of the tile color and I want something that I can change easier, but I am still super concerned about safety.

    I want to use non-adhesive cabinet liner but I am still concerned about it being in contact with the heat mat so what I was thinking was I could use one large tile over the heated area and then have the cabinet liner on the cool side, cut out around where the tile is so it isn't in contact with the heat mat or getting warm sandwiched under the tile.

    Thoughts on this? Am I being too much of a paranoid geck mom? Is there a specific brand of cabinet liner that works best? I was hoping for a grey or black color.

    Leos are creatures of habit. Any change disturbs them somewhat. Ceramic tiles are great conductors of heat. Shelf liner is paper thin.

    How about redesigning something else or bringing in a few daffodils to spice things up?
