    Question Tub question. =]]]

    So I'm thinking about getting three sized to tubs when I make my rack. 16 small tubs for baby bps, 20 tubs for mid-sized bps, and 4 big tubs. Does that sound good? (I will add more as needed. =)

    Where can I get good cheap tubs?

    Can you keep colubrids and bp's in the same rack? Like arent there temperatures kinda the same? Or would it just be best to keep them in something else?
    I just didnt want to have to spend more money on like tanks and stuff like that.

    Thanks everyone for all your help.

    I keep Colubrids, Boas, and Pythons all in the same racks at the same temps. Zero issues.

    Pay attention to the species needs and you will do fine.

    Re: Tub question. =]]]

    I asked this question a while back and I found the easiest way to have two species with their own specific temps it to wire each shelf of flexwatt individually. Then either hook these shelves up to a different thermostat or a thermostat on a dimmer. Corns are rather forgiving so putting them on a thermostat with a dimmer should not pose a threat. Ball pythons need pretty specific temps so I wouldn't try to find a "happy medium" for a rack with two or three species. Someone will suffer.

    Also. http://www.thecontainerstore.com I use mens shoe boxes for babies and boot boxes for adults. They also have a largerer under bed box too.

    how do you get a dimmer?
    can you install one on a regular thermostat?

    All you do is plug the flexwatt into the dimmer and the dimmer into the thermostat.
