It’s a sudden weather change up here, and I can’t keep my tanks or tubs warm enough. The hot spot is okay around 82-84 at night, but woke up and anywhere else was 63, and the tubs were 60! Now, I don’t have permanent housing and the person I’m staying with refuses for the heat to come on at night, so how can I raise the temps on the cold side/ambient? How does heat cables work with plastic (with a thermostat!) and could I install it inside the enclosure and keep it at around 75? What the cheapest, but works well for the job?
Also, any recommended brand of infrared lights for the tanks I actually do use? I currently use a 75w zoo med bulb that keeps a small area at about 83 at night, but I try to keep that where the heat pad is already at so it doesn’t drop further. This is my first year working where it all be snowing soon and i don’t want to risk them before I even get a place. Thank you guys! Really appreciate all the help this community has given me already!
