Ultratherm and Flukers are great brands, and purchasing online can save money over buying in store. I needed more Flukers and am waiting on my order to come in, saved $10 each by ordering online.

Ultratherms are only sold by The Bean Farm and Reptile Basics. One of those two also lists them on Amazon I never remember which. I have ordered from both companies before. Waiting on another delivery from Reptile Basics next week, actually.

Flukers can be found at online pet stores. I think the company does direct sales as well? Shop around for the best price, and if you need other supplies that also brings the price down. I am also waiting on a delivery from LLL Reptile for my new pads. I've ordered from them several times over the years. They wholesale to pet stores so have some really hard to find stuff sometimes.

I’ve used Flukers for many years and I usually buy from LLL Reptile as well. But you gotta read this review I saw last time I was shopping on Flukers website. Long but worth it. I about died at some of this lmao :lol: :lol: :lol:
