Hey everyone. Today I bought two California Kings and a Snow Corn to add along with my Motley Corn at the White Plains expo. After the expo I went to K-Mart and bought two Rubbermaid 23 inch long sweater boxes.I put the kings in each one. THey are set up nicely with water, paper substrate, and plenty of ventilation. My only concern is heating. I was thinking of putting a heat pad underneath each box. But, I am afraid that the heat pad may melt the plastic. Should this be a concern of mine? And, if the heat pad is ok what size should I use? Should I use a pad for 5-10 gallon tanks or 10-20 gallon tanks. Does anyone have any suggestions in heating the Rubbermaid bins? Eventially in the summer I would like to build my own rack system. Thanks for any sggestions and help.- ELvy
