    How do I set up a tub for my BP?

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I am planning on buying my first BP from a breeder online and want to have my tub set up beforehand. I have heard that a tub is less hassle than a tank and it痴 easier to moderate the temp. So, I have a few questions to ask...

    1) What kind of tub and what size do I need? (I want to buy a baby snake so I知 assuming it値l be anywhere from a hatchling to a few months old)

    2) What is the best type of bedding? (Newspaper, aspen, etc)

    3) How many hides do I need? I read two is best; one for the cold side and one for the warm side

    4) What are all the different thermometers/heating stuff required?

    Sorry this is a lot, I just want to have the best home for my snake. I have done my own research but I hear different things so wanted to hear from any experienced owners. Thanks a lot!

    Tub setup for hatchling BPs here

    I use a little bit bigger tub so I could provide two identical hides, one on the cool side and one on the warm side, but otherwise follow this to a T.

    Re: How do I set up a tub for my BP?

    Do yourself a favor and don't skimp on the thermostat. Invest in a Herpstat 1 or similar proportional t-stat now and save yourself hassle/money down the road. Most first time owners don't expect such a big expense along with everything else they're buying and avoid investing in a proper one... don't!
