    I just clicked on them and they still worked. Did you have a specific one you needed to see?

    Sorry about that, the bandwidth limit on my photobucket account was exceeded from so many people viewing my threads. I upgraded my photobucket account so I now have unlimited bandwidth so they should work again.

    Re: How to Setup a Glass Tank (20 long) With Pictures!

    Firstly, Thank you for the amazing post. I used it a ton when I was putting my snakes tank together. I even bought most of the recommended things haha.

    But, having bought the Reptile Basics UTH that has no sticky side to adhere to the tank, how can I get it to better sit on the glass because it is bubbling. It's not producing the temps I want in the hide and even the surrounding area that is actually up against the glass. I have it turned up to 94 on the herpstat, probably like half an inch or less of aspen and its still like 85-87. I have a 20G Long and I got the 11x11, so the probe in the middle is making that bubble. Can I just take UTH off and secure it where it bubbles to the glass? I would think being foil tape, that it would interfere with the heating and do more damage than good. Or is it best to just tape probe on the bottom of the UTH, but then I would think it wouldn't gauge temps right because of the air cooling it off. Catch 22 it seems lol.

    Concerning the UTH with therm probe:

    The issue I have with this is that you're getting the heat measurement pretty much straight from the heating element rather than where the snake will be sitting above it over the glass and substrate (I'm currently using reptile carpet/felt).

    Am I wrong in assuming you're not going to really get that accurate temperature sine it's measuring the pad temp and not the internal side of the cage?

    One question as well about UTH, I've been reading around have not found a definitive answer:

    Heat pad on the hot side with the heat lamp or middle or under the cooler side? With my heat lamp it sits about 90 degrees on the hot side and 78 on the cool side.

    Is it even necessary to have UTH with these temps on one lamp?

    Technically? No. If you're obtaining the correct thermal gradient with overhead heat alone, then you should be fine without a UTH. Just make sure you are measuring you temps near the bottom of the enclosure where the snake actually hangs out.
