    Yeah that one will do it. I use basically the same one minus the probe. It just sits inside the cage. The only problem with mine is it gets knocked over a lot. Here is a link to the one I use.

    Looking at getting a new bowl for him. I have read to get big for them to lay and soak in, then I hear to go smaller because snakes couldnít soak. Any opinions on this? I currently have a plastic one that gets flipped all the time, so looking at a ceramic now.

    For the T8 I use this corner one. Its big and heavy enough that it cant be flipped over. It holds a lot of water and that helps keep up the humidity. Here is the amazon link.

    I got the large and it is a serious size bowel. I wouldn't get the extra large unless you had a bigger enclosure.
