    Is the black area around the heat lamp in the picture part of the screen top? Move your heat lamp to one side, not in the middle. Cover the entire lid with foil then cut out a circle for the heat lamp. On the opposite side of the lid, cut a vent into the foil leaving the foil as a flap about 4 inches long. Reduce your heat bulb to a 75 or 50 watt. Put you water bowl in the middle of your tank and move it toward the heat lamp or away to adjust your humidity. This will take time and trial and error to do because you will need to allow the humidity to readjust everything you move the water bowl. Make sure your water bowl has a big surface area of water. I have a link to a video in one of the posts in this thread that explains all this and about water surface area. Find and watch it to see if it helps.

    So just to understand on these 20L run a UTH with tstat and inferred lamp at 50w with another tstat(at least this is how I achieve the proper temps I've posted). Once the ambient temps reach 80-85ish and the surface temp(taken with IR temp gun) reads 90-95ish and the cool side surface temp is around 75-80ish with humidity around 60-70% is idea? I'm new but trying to get an over all understanding of the 16 pages. I'm In TX and I know once the outside temps start warming up I'll have to cut the light off until next winter and just boost my tstat on my uth just to make sure the basking temps are where they should be. Hope this makes sense.

    My BP's are all housed in cages setup like this and I've yet to have a bad shed:

    Apologies for putting another view on things but many keepers have branches in their Royal setups as they will most definitely climb them in the evenings . They will even chill-out in them for a while on occasion and if course climbing is great exercise for them .

    I've even got one Royal , my two year old Pastel who strike feeds from the branches and eats up in them - if he's up there when it's feeding time .

    Certainly worth a try as they can simply be removed if needed .

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?
    Well I for one use a glue gun very successfully to stick down any probes or wires in my vivs .

    Not sure if this has been asked already, if I plan on getting a UTH with a temp controller, do I still need to get the thermostat?

    A thermostat is a temp controller. You one that if it were to fail it turns off so that it does not start a fire or burn your animal.

    So I got everything and my tank is set up this exact same way, the only problem I seem to be having is the fact that I couldn't get my UTH as flat against the glass as I would've liked. Can I just tape over the whole thing with the aluminum foil tape in hopes that it holds the UTH flat against the glass? or should I just take the tape off and try again?
