    I'm not sure if these next questions are silly or not, I'm just nervous about doing anything wrong as it's my first time trying to make one of these set ups!

    So you need a slight gap between the tub and heat mat to allow air circulation but I'm wondering about what you put the heatmat on, like the underside of it. I'm going to put my tub onto a wooden dresser, it wouldn't burn it would it? Also how big should the gap between rub and mat be?

    Alot of the tubs have recessed bottoms, so, by only taping the sides of the Under Tank Heater to the tub, there will still be a small space between the center of the pad and the tub for circulation, and it's also a good spot for the thermostat probe to be placed. The gap doesn't have to be very large. Maybe 3-5 mm or so.

    If you want to place the tub on a dresser, I would suggest getting another piece of wood to set the tub and heat pad on. The tub shouldn't get hot enough to damage the dresser, but I would rather not take the chance. You can probably find a piece of scrap plywood at a home improvement store, or even a shelf from an old bookcase or computer desk, or anything like that.

    I noticed that you are in the UK. I don't know which thermostat controllers are available on the European market. One of the forum admins, Dr. Del, may be able to help you there. He is also in the UK. The only one that I know of is the Habistat...

    Yes, I have the heat pads and thermostat probes attached to tbe melamine, and the tubs just sit on top. That way, when I have to move the tubs for cleaning, I don't have to mess with the cords. That allows me to keep two tubs for each snake. I set up a clean tub, put the snake in it, set it on the heat pad, dump the dirty bedding in the trash, stack the dirty tubs, take them all out at once for washing with soap and water, then I use disinfectant, and stack them back in the closet, ready for the next cleaning day...

    Hey Vypyrz,

    I just set up this set up for my bp and I am having trouble getting the humidity to stay down. I have about 10 holes on either side and the humidity just keeps going up to 99%. any suggestions?
