I wouldn't use a heatrock just in case... We use under-tank heaters in both our snakes' tanks and they work well. The cornsnake uses his/hers all the time while the new Rosy Boa has yet to really use his much... one thing I did, though, in an attempt to make a "basking" area was put a regular rock (one which I'd found outside and washed/disinfected thoroughly) on top of the substrate over the heat pad. Since the rock I found is actually more like a slab, the heater does warm it a bit and my snake likes to wrap himself around the edges of it. Don't know if it would work for you but it's worth a shot. Maybe if you used a rock (not a heat rock, just a regular rock or stone slab) and then put a spotlight over it, you might get more heat that way?
