When you said "radiant heat panel" are you talking about a heat pad? Or is this something else?
As for installing the flourescent inside, will the 25w bulb cause burns if the snake touches it?
I was planning on getting the thermostat from big apple or the one that boaphiles sell. Any experience with either of these?
:That seems to be a very nice enclosure...I would personally completely obliterate the two holes in the ceiling and use a radiant heat panel (covering about 1/2 of the ceiling surface area) and a small fluorescent light mounted directly inside the cage instead. IMO Incandescent lights and ceramic heaters have a tendency to dessicate the cage really fast. The holes located on top of the cage would also let the humidity and heat go out very quickly. You mentionned the use of a thermometer, I suppose you meant a thermostat. I think for GTP you really need a thermostat that automatically adjust the temperature.
