    Post New member, New to all of this, Another T10 question.

    I know the wait is long not worried about that, the BP is still a baby and not big enough to be ship out yet.
    until the mean time i will be using plastic tubs. but i want to order a T10 Now my question is, Do you need to have RHP and flex belly heat tape?
    or can i just order the T10 with the belly heat tape? whats the difference in RHP and belly tape?
    and for the guys that have RHP, how much did it cost to get the RHP?

    Will this tub work until the mean time? i pick this one up today.

    For a ball python in a T10, skip the belly heat. You don't need it. Just get the RHP. I think it was around $150 or so (I honestly can't remember with my T10). But, it's all you need. If you get it from Pro-Products, you can have them ship it to Animal Plastics and have them install it for you.

    The 2 T-18's I have on order I ordered the belly heat, I also have RHP's I've already ordered and will install them when I get the T18's

    From all I've read only the RHP's are required, I personally like to have a back up heat system in case of failure or issue with the RHP

    The belly heat will give them a hot spot at least if needed.

    I started my baby BP's out in a 10 gallon tank, it measured 20"x10" so a tub of that size should work

    The first tub you posted was 14 3/16x 17 3/8 I would think that would work

    My Only concern on the first link, the Tub I pick up, is that, it's Pure flat, under neath, no air flow for my heat mat, I have a Thermostat, Ipower .... the other 2 links I posted up, they have some lip under the bin for air flow....

    On the glass tanks, when sitting on a flat surface I added self stick feet like this https://www.lowes.com/pd/Scotch-Rubb...ers/1000328183 to the corners ,

    that gave it an air gap for the heat. I also covered my heat mat with a piece of reflectix,

    https://www.lowes.com/pd/Reflectix-R...5-ft-L/1014123

    to help direct the heat up into the tank for a hot spot. I'm currently doing that on a plastic tub right now for my quarantined snake.

    Yes those corners things I'll go pick up...
    Question, so you have an AP cage? As for the option to add a Basking Shelf, is this shelf removable or permanent 🤔

    I have AP Cages on order, Hopefully I see them by the end this year.

    Yes as far as I know the basking shelf is removable, There's another post on here where a member took his out and wasn't using it.

    Found it.... Here's another thread https://ball-pythons.net/forums/show...=1#post2758435

    Post #9 Charles 8088 said he took his out
