Hi Krystal,

I noticed that the smallest UTH available at The Bean Farm is 11" x 7". I have no doubt that this would be more than enough for your cage, especially given you'll be using the PVC over particle board and plywood.

But you'll probably have to use a rheostat and/or thermostat to control them.

Hopefully the temperature gradient from top to bottom won't be so bad as to require separate controls for each cage.

I don't know if there are smaller UTH's on the market. I thought I had seen some at local petstores, but I'm not sure.

Might be worth it to check out Big Apple and some other places and see if they have anything smaller. Just buy one and see how it works before you buy the other three.
