    I went to petmountain and saw a heater cable. Is this a good thing? They have a small one that is 11.5' which gives you 5' feet of heated cable and uses 15 watts. I want to heat my scorpion tank, my B. smithi tank and my Pokie sling tank as well. Does anyone heree use them?

  3. i use a 25 footer for my 29 gallon tank and it keeps the temp between 79 and 84 degrees depending on time of day. use electrical tape t secure it i tried duct tape and it got to hot to stay attached. hope that helps:D
     
  4. One entire 25' cable to heat a 29 gal enclosure? Wow.

    I use zoo med heat cable to heat breeding colonies of worms, I have a decent number of scorpions and spiders on sitting on heat cable that I ran back and forth, and I have a breeding rack of leopard geckos wired with. Just make sure you use something to controll the temperature like a rheostat or a-life.
     
  6. well you have to remember that it is 25 feet including the 6 feet of "cold" cable
