heat tape
    #1147647 - 12/17/02 04:56 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I have been reading alot about heating terrariums using heating pads and
aquarium heaters...
Has anyone ever tried using "HEAT TAPE" ...you know the tape that is used for
wrapping around pipes to keep them from freezing......
I was thinking about using this and I need any thoughts, comments etc.....
Thanks
and happy trails......

I think its actually a thin heated element that is covered by insulated tape.
that you just plug in. I think you can buy in various lenghs..I was thinking about
using a small piece taped to the side of my terrarium....and monitor the temp with
a thermometer....

I think heat tape would work. Just test the temp first. You should put it underneath the terrarium with a towel over the heat tape. That should help it heat more evenly since heat rises. If the heat tape gets too hot you could go buy one of those dimmer switches. That way you could turn the heat tape up and down. Good idea man. I might look into that.

keep too I don't use any towels just a dimmer switch. I have not had any hot spot that flex watt is great stuff the bestest reptiles breeders in the U.S only use it. They have 100,000 of thousands dollars worth of reptiles. If they trust the stuff I would. If you want the temp to be right on get one of the helix control they rock I have one on my incubator and it's alway within 1/2 degree
