I thought it was going to get hotter than it did, but now that I think about it, I think it's actually a good thing. The substrate is nice and warm from being heated by the cable, but the glass underneath isn't burning hot. If you have a large tank, definitely order the longest one. I thought the 14 foot cable would be long enough for a 6 foot long tank, but half of the cable doesn't heat up, and with the way it needs to be put onto the tank, I only got half of my tank heated by it. Other than that, I loved the heat cable :)
This go round, I was not buying for a reptile but for a 10 ft CRAP hose. I know, weird, right? This one is the perfect length for the 10 ft, and I placed a "dimmer" plug between it and the outlet so I can make my air warmer or cooler. It keeps the humidified air from re-condensing and raining on my face. Anyhow, when I had tree frogs I could have used this. I had tried purchasing a "vine" that was heated, but it was paper mache covered and just dissolved in their wet environ. This is just a flexible, floppy, plastic-rubber rope you can wrap around a branch, or attach to the bottom for heat source (instructions included). Excellent! Apply my HomeDepot sourced dimmer if you want to further control the heat. Easy purchase, Super fast delivery
it works great it wasn't the easyest to install but keep the floor of my monitor cage prefect for her now she dosn't get on the shelf in her cage hardly ever to get warmer she happy on the ground
My husband normally uses heat tape in his racks which works fine, but requires him to have each tub set to the same temperature. With this he was able to give each snake the exact temperature it required. Plus, it is easy to adjust so for those snakes that he planned on cooling he was able to give less heat rope to.There are some cool spots in the cable but none were so large as to cause an entire tub to be too cool.Highly recommended... along with a thermostat of course.
I have always trusted zoo-med products for my reptiles. The heat cable is great for heating multiple cages! Or for providing heat at night for your reptiles.
Its a great product, heats up to about 90ish. It can have some hot spots but nothing to serious. Just remember that the first 6 feet doesn't heat up.
