UTH?

Post by friesb4uxbabe » Thu Nov 15, 2018 11:24 am

So its gotten quite cold where I live, I currently have a ReptiTherm that's meant for 50-60g tanks. Along with this, I have a smaller one that's meant for 10-20g. The temps have dropped in the tank because of how cold it's become, usually they're at 80-85, but temps have dropped to the low 70's. I just wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations on under tank heaters or ways to keep the tank warm? I have a plush towel on top of the tank, as well as cardboard and aluminum on the sides. I read this was helpful on here some time ago. Any who, thanks in advance!
P.s my tank is 55g.

I can honestly recommend Ultratherm heat pad from Bean farm https://beanfarm.com/products/ultrather ... 11-x-48-in.
You will need to use styrofoam to insulate your tank (after placing the pad on the back). They have different sizes to choose from. Good luck!
