    If you would rather do email, on the Pro Products landing there is a column on the right called 'Main Menu'. Under that is a 'Contact' link. Fill that out to email them and include the size of your enclosure, species that will live in it, and the ambient temp range of the room your snake will be in. They'll contact you back with what sized/watt heat panel will suit your needs or ask additional questions before giving a recommendation. Then they will email instructions on how to order. The ordering part is a bit weird since you 'buy' a random product on their site like their mite spray, but put a note on that order saying what you actually want to buy.

    For the sake of others who may not know - Bob at Pro Products is indeed fantastic, and all of my RHPs came from him. The reason that you can't just go to his website and click on an RHP to buy is that he wants to be 100% sure you are getting the right RHP. So, as mentioned above, his site explains that in order to get an RHP, you first need to send him an email and answer a list of questions he provides, ranging from the species of snake you are keeping to the type and size of enclosure, ambient temps in the snake room, etc. Based on that he'll contact you with information about which RHP to order, and how to order it.

    It may seem like an odd system, but there is a reason his RHPs are considered to be the best in the business.
    1.0 Jungle Carpet Python 'Ziggy'
    0.1 Brazilian Rainbow Boa 'Mara'
    1.1 Tarahumara Mountain Boas 'Paco' and 'Frida'
    1.0 Dumeril's Boa 'Gyre'
    1.0 Stimson's Python 'Jake'
    1.1 Children's Pythons 'Miso' and 'Ozzy'
    1.0 Anthill Python 'Cricket'
    1.0 Plains Hognose 'Peanut'
    1.1 Rough-scaled Sand Boas 'Rassi' and 'Kala'
    0.4 Oregon Red-spotted Garters

    I see. Basically did that over the phone so, it all got taken care of in the end one way or another.

    Also forgot that I haven't ordered more t-stats, but probably best to wait for now until I get more cash in since they won't be immediately needed anyway. It's really the hides that are the most pressing need at this point, my BP barely fits in them anymore. There's snug and then there's being big enough to constantly move the entire thing so the back end is exposed (it's one of those "log tunnels" with one end wedged against the tank wall).

    Yea I wouldn't order RHPs from anyone else. I'm sure he's sold thousands of heat panels but when I called to order mine he seemed just as excited to sell one to me as he would if it were his first sale. That's the kind of passion for your product that makes me a lifelong customer.

    If you can put some cash away for one, consider a Herpstat. With the RHP I've needed no other heating equipment and the Herpstat 2 keeps my temps exactly where I want them. A bit on the pricey side, but the peace of mind you get with them are priceless.

    I thought RHPs just handled the ambient temperature like a CHE does (only without completely zapping all the moisture out of the air). Will I not still need the UTH?

    Also took a look and, yeah that nearly $200 price tag is pretty steep after the amount of money I've already spent yesterday. Not that it particularly matters atm as they seem to be out of stock until May. Does it regulate two separate heat sources as the name seems to imply at least?

    It does, the Herpstat 2 has two plug ins and will regulate two heat sources, which is why I got a 2 to use for a second enclosure. If you only intend to have one enclosure with one heat source you can get away with the cheaper Herpstat, it's just up to what you want to do long term.

    As far as the what the RHP does, it pushes heat down, but the PVC enclosures holds heat way better than a glass tank. The inside of the warm hide, directly under the RHP stays at about 90, the hot side is at 86, cool side is at 78. All off JUST a RHP, no UTH needed.

    Finally managed to sell it. Sadly at a $75 deficit for what I initially paid for but I've made up for it with the other things I've sold before this.

    A learning experience that could have been much worse, so keep that in mind.
