Terrarium heating - ideas?
    #3941813 - 03/19/05 11:20 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I know this is probably a frequent post, but keep in mind I haven't been at this for a couple of years.  :crazy: I've looked through the FAQs and most of the guides, searched the archives, and brainstormed as much as I can. I figure this is gotta be the best route - you guys know your shit - can you lend me a hand here?

I have a 19 gal sterilite plastic tub, basic PF tek. Perlite bottom, air hose for air circulation, etc, etc.. I've been using a submersible fish tank heater in a tall glass jar (like a vase) located dead center of the terrarium for temp. control. I also keep a blanket around the base to keep temps from shifting. This seems to work only Okay. I'm wanting to set up another terrarium from scratch, and I'm looking to see what you guys do cause I want to try something new.

I've read about using heating pads, and I don't want to simply put a heating pad under my tub. None too safe. Do you guys have any other ideas? What do you do?

No heating pads. Room temps between 70-80 are fine.
