    This is an awesome guide, thank you.
    i got everything setup just like you recommend .
    I see that some people say that it's ok to run infrared 24/7 I'm a bit worried that it might stress my Python out anyway . Do you think it's better to run infrared during the day and zoo med moonlight at night ?
    What do you guys have in your tanks ?
    i have an exo terra 36x18x18 with herpstat 1 powering reptile basics 11x11 on one side and 75 w infrared light in the middle, I have bunch of hides. I'm getting 4 months ball python for kids for Christmas , so I can't test my setup yet. I will set it up in few days in the closet and get my snake on 23rd to keep it as much a surprise as I can.
    Aaron, I see that you mentioned that you run reptisun. Do you think it would be better for my setup ?
    thanks

    Running the inferred heat lamp 24/7 will not stress the snake. You just need any visible light that is for you to be on a 12 hour cycle so it's not daylight four 24 hours. If I understand your setup, you have the heat lamp in the middle? I would suggest moving it to one side so that is your hot side and the other side is your cold side.

    I already have uth on the hot side, the light in the middle makes temperature more even cold hot side, or at least I thought so.
    would it be better to use some kind of other light not infrared for a day/night cycle ?

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

    So I followed this tank setup pretty closely as far as the UTH and tstat and bought the exact same thermometer, but when I placed the thermometer in the tank as you had it, my BP messed with the cord and drowned my thermometer. I know I can't place any sort of tape in his tank so what should I do to prevent this from happening again in the future? Can I take a hot glue gun and glue over the probe wire in the corners of either side of the tank? Any other suggestions?

    Why can't you use tape on the inside?
    i see the thermometer set up but I can't see how you got the probe through. Did you drill a hole?

    The Walmart thermometer that I am using is all inside the tank. I put the unit on the cold side with it set to display Temps and humidity. The probe is over on the hot side. I did in the past hot glue mine but now I just let the substrate hold it down. If you have a uth, place the probe over the center of it. It will not give you an exact temp but an idea of what the Uth is doing. Make sure you have some sort of control such as a thermostat.

    Tape,..... Basically it will about skin a snake. I think you can Google this to see.

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

    Well I set the thermometer and probe up JUST like you did in the pictures, but he drowned my main thermometer unit and then he somehow got the probe unstuck (obviously I then freaked out over the adhesive thing that sticks it to the glass) but after I found that and made sure he was okay I was left with a very wet thermometer and no way to make sure my temps were accurate.. I'm working on getting a temp gun so that i won't have to deal with this in the future, but for now do you have any suggestions as to how I could maybe restick this probe to my tank at all? I tried using a teeeeeny weeeeny piece of the aluminum tape on the probe and making it like double sided and cutting all of the edges so that there was no way he could get stuck on it but of course he dislodged the probe again so i took it all out immediately. I have the Jump Start thermostat and a Zilla UTH.

    As in drowned it in the water bowl? What substrate are you using and can you post a photo of your setup? Find my post in this thread with the video link. That may help more than pics.
