    That set-up is being controlled by a Herpstat Pro. Yes, that may be overkill for a tub set-up, but I bought that thermostat to control the eventual permanent PVC cages that I would need as my snakes out grow their tubs.

    As long as you are using a thermostat to control the heat source, no, it will not melt the plastic.

    I got them at either Lowes or Home Depot. They both sell those type of plastic shelving. Since they are designed to be stacked as a unit, I did have to make some modifications to brace the legs for the second set so that it didn't wobble. If you need photos on how I did that, just let me know...

    What size tubs would you recommend for average size BP's? This is a clean set up. You mentioned getting a PVC cage, is this because tubs are not a permanent solution? I like the tubs but only want to switch if it's a lasting solution. I have wood enclosure and it's too difficult to regulate temp and humidity.

    You can use tubs as a permanent solution as long as it meets your snakes requirements. My BP does just fine in his tub, however, most of my boas are outgrowing their tubs and need the space of the larger pvc enclosures.
