    60qt tub for bp?

    So my bp Germaine is juuust about big enough to grow out of her tank, I eventually want to move her into a AP T10 but I have some 60qt bins laying around that I could use rather than getting another glass tank. They are rather short but bps aren't arboreal or anything so I can't imagine her missing the height. I also want to try using heat tape, I've been using those stick on UTHs so far and I've been rather disappointed with them. I'll get some pics of the tank when I get home.

    I meant tub, but you get the idea.

    I use the Hefty 52qt. size in my home-made rack with under tank heaters and the one female ball I had in a 40B before that adjusted without missing a beat. I drilled 3/8" holes every 3" on the long sides and it's been great for me.

    I use 56 quart under-bed storage tubs for my adults. Nice floor space for them, though I have to keep a tight hide in there to keep them feeling cozy, since its a big floor plan.

    I was planning to get bark chunks and stuff so I could get some naturalistic hides, think that'd work?
