    Rhp for 6x2x2

    Not sure if I should get an 80 watt or 120 watt heat panel for my new boa enclosure. Iím leaning toward the 120 watt as winters typically can get pretty cold here in Ohio. Of course it would be hooked up to a thermostat. I just donít want it to be overkill either. Any suggestions?

    I would go 120 with that much height. If you aren't decided on a panel company yet, message or call Pro Products. they will ask for some info on the cage and environment, and then tell you what panel you should use. I have been using their panels for a couple years now and they make a great, safe and reliable heat panel.

    I tried to contact them. They gave me a recommendation but then nothing else. Didnít see the option to even purchase it. I think they wanted me to use an even higher wattage. Looking at reptile basic atm. Ty for your reply.

    You have to call to order or place an order for a random thing I.e provent a mite and in the remarks of the order tell them to disregard the provent a mite and that you want to order a [insert model number here] rhp. The ordering is a pita honestly but thereís no better panels out there. I use 4 of them. I have 125w panels in my 6íx30Ēx18s.

    Iíve had reptile basics along time ago. It worked but not as well as the pro products I have now do. Granted thereís a 12 year seperate on of the 2 brands. But when I went to get more, I checked out reptile basics, naturally as thatís what I had before. I exited the page once I read thermal fuse and seen that the cord can be disconnected at the panel. Your snake will climb up through the cord. Even when itís next to the roof. Iíve heard a whole bunch of complaints about the thermal fuse and cord. Only complaint I ever hear about pro products is the ordering method.

    Bobís a good dude that makes great products. He doesnít list the individual panels on the site because he makes so many different wattages that might not be best suited for oneís needs. Give him a buzz and heíll get you squared away. Also does 10% off if you pay with a check (avoids credit card processing fees).

    Yeah, the online ordering process is strange to say the least. There is something sort of "cloak and dagger" about the whole thing. Bob, who I think is the owner, is a super nice, knowledgeable guy who takes pride in his product. He wants to sell you the right panel and he doesn't think that we could choose that for ourselves, so the panel models aren't listed on the website. If you call, you can get a recommendation and order right over the phone. That is if you actually get him on the phone. They are busy as hell right now. If you settle for email communication, you will play email tag for awhile. It will take awhile to get your panels either way. If you need one right now, Pro Products isn't the way to go. Good luck.
