i am getting some African fat tail geckos on Friday and i bought a heat pad and was wondering if i should putt it on the wall or on the bottom of the cage. i have a total of 9 lizards but none of them need heating pads. Tyler

Heating pad Help
If it’s the kind of heat pad that sticks to the underside of the tank’s bottom then there will need to be airflow under the tank. Placing the tank on an open top aquarium stand or on 2 2x4’s will help with that. Without airflow the glass will become too hot and crack. If the heat pad is made to go under the substrate be sure there is at least 2" of substrate on top of it.
