Hello! As of now I do have a heater for my crabs but I have been looking into getting a better one and doing some upgrades in their tank, currently they have a small zoomed under tank heater, which recently I have learned is a fire hazard. I also have a leopard gecko, (he just got all his upgrades) he has an under tank heater with a thermostat and I really really love his heater, I want to get the same one for my crabs except I'm not sure how to get it on the side and not underneath, electrical tape around the edges? I haven't been able to find any heaters that are actually made for going on the side of tanks. I was just going to buy the same heater my gecko has because it works AMAZINGLY and I have never had any issues with it but would it be stupid to put electrical tape around the edges to hold it on the side of the tank? It kind of makes sense to me, electrical tape can withstand heat and absorbs electricity and its very sticky and strong, where as I feel like using anything else to stick it to the side would cause melting, or fire hazards, or possibly not even hold it up (also the heating mat is black so it wouldn't look too funky). Thanks in advance for any help!
