Any idea what it would take to heat a 50 gallon? I'm thinking about upgrading but not sure what size uth or how many.

Get the 11" x 48" UTH from Reptile Basics. It fits on my 55 gal and 65 gal. Double check measurements. Works great. Image

Look up the brand ultratherm. They have pads for larger tanks. If that's not available in your area, or the pads are not the right size, you could look at thermal tape.

You could also look at The Bean Farm. We have gotten uths there and they are great.

Thanks guys. I found an ultratherm from the bean farm that's 35x11. Hopefully that will be enough, I like to keep my house pretty cool.
