UTH instillation.

PostAuthor: HHIhermies1004 » Thu Aug 09, 2018 4:26 pm

Hi all I hope I’m posting this at the right spot. So I just got my ultratherm mat today and I don’t know how to mount it on the side of my tank. It doesn’t have that sticky back side that my old mat had so I’m a bit perplexed. I used a bit of packing tape at the moment but wondering if that’s really safe. Any tips and instruction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Packing tape is fine :)

Usually you want to put your ultratherm on the back of the tank above the substrate though.
Truly blessed to have hermit crabs, dogs, a cat, fish, a box turtle, a pacman frog, butterflies, isopods, crickets, incredible friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm so thankful and grateful for all of them!
