    I've taken the liberty of reposting a pic of your enclosure from October. If your set up has changed substantially, please post a current photo. I've never used CHEs myself, but these pics will help those that do advise you. Thanks.

    If it did the job you could replace it with another CHE or with a deep heat projector (DHP) of similar wattage.

    I use a RHP (clearly visible in this photo) and heat tape (under the tub). There is a whole in the pvc shelf that allows my snake to go from one to the other.

    RHP? I know it no excuse for not looking it up even though I had him about 3 years because of a crazy work schedule every day is a new day to learn and I have learned some to a lot with him and other people will look at it soon

    FYI, I like using backless indoor-outdoor carpet for some of my snakes, & I've been doing so for many years; it's a very "green" option, as it lasts virtually "forever", it's hand-washable, can be disinfected, dries fast (or can be used damp) & offers excellent traction for snakes. It also allows UTH heat to rise thru it easily.
