ZooMed's guide says not to place a CHE or heat bulb directly over the heat pad as it can lead to excess build up of heat... Should I scratch the idea of having a regular house bulb over it? Obviously I will have a temp gun to double check before I get the animal. Is there another issue besides heat I should be aware of?

I'd say it depends on how things are setup and if both are on a thermostat. Keep in mind many typical setups don't have thermostats or thermal barriers (like the mat being in a hide). Shining a light or Che at a mat with just carpet in the way sounds like bad news.

Thanks yet again.

What I'm wondering is this:
Should the UTH fit exactly to the edges of the cage? Or is a few inches too thin ok?

I've been talking with a breeder and know what I am going to do for enclosures when juvenile and adult. However, I do need help with a thermostat. I really don't want to blow $100 bucks on a vicarious electronics model. Does anyone know a a cheap(ish) thermostat that fails OFF?

I like everything about the hydro farm model besides that it fails on.
