    Default What heat mat works well for leopard geckos using ceramic tile as substrate?

    Any suggestions on heating a leopard gecko enclosure using ceramic tile as a substrate? (An exo-terra 24x18x12)

    Thanks!

    Hello!!

    Ceramic tiles are a great substrate for leopard geckos, and they are very good at transmitting heat, I would recomend an under tank heater, medium, I've had good results with ZooMed, conected to a thermostate, and, if you live in a very cold area, I would add an ceramic heat emitter, in order to create a warm environment in one of the sides of the viv.
    Here are some links that could be of help:

    Once, again, the CHE would help a lot if you live in a cold place, or if the viv is in a cold room, if you live (let's say, in Florida) in a warmer area, I think the CHE would not be necessary.

    Thank you geckowoman! I live in WI, so will definitely be getting a CHE. The ZooMed seems like a safe bet..I wanted a heat mat that wasn't stick on, but the ones that don't, the manufacturers are not recommending using them with ceramic tile, since it's thick. Thanks for letting me know the ZooMed does work.
