    Perfect for a 20 gallon tanks or 42 qt tubs

    By Aircka on Aug 14, 2018

    Have used this brand and heat mat for all my reptiles in 20 gallon tanks and 42 qt tubs for the past three years. They have never malfunctioned or caused damage. I recommend using aluminum foil tape to hold them more securely they dont stick too well.

    Would not buy again!

    By Kimba on Aug 20, 2018

    After about one week the sticky came off the back and fell off of the aquarium. I have raised reptiles for years and have NEVER had this happen. Waste of money!

  • Works well

    By on

    I have this for the underbelly of my bi-level 40gal gecko tank and it works well. I can say that it isn't a noticable heat that comes off of it through eco-rug. It's just a very slight temp increase. The size was perfect and fit juuuust right for the hide beneath the bi-level. The ashesive works well and hasn't really budged since I applied it. I just wish it were a bit warmer.

  • Recommended!!!

    By on

    The rubber stickies that hold the aquarium above the surface fall off easy so you wouldn't want to move it around very much, mat stayed well clinged to the bottom of the aquarium. I used Eco Earth for my substrate about 1 inch thick and the heat came through nicely. The mat warms the warm side up to around 83┬░Fahrenheit

  • Good Quality

    By on

    I didn't see there were two options so I ordered the small one by mistake and ordered two but it's okay because I ended up using it for my small snake enclosure and to add extra heat for my tortoise.

  • Great for hermit crabs

    By on

    I use this heating pad for my hermit crabs. I put it under the tank on the sand side. It heats the sand just the right amount, but it doesn't heat the whole tank itself.

  • Smaller than expected

    By on

    Its smaller than i expected, but thats my fault, I didn't measure my tank. Even though it's small it keeps my scaly babies warm.

  • Decent.

    By on

    Before purchasing my reptile friend I did my research and found out I needed an Under Tank Heater(UTH) both for warmth and proper digestion and all that good stuff. I shop chewy ALL the time and found this Zilla mat; I know a lot of pet stores carry Zilla products so I ordered one. When it got here I followed all instructions, stuck it to the bottom of my tank, rubbed it down all over to make sure it stuck, avoided setting the tank on the cord, plugged it in. It got nice and warm, I left the room and came back about 15 minutes later to find it laying on the floor. I put it back in place and left the room again. (This time for a longer period) When I came back into the room, it was on the floor Before purchasing my reptile friend I did my research and found out I needed an Under Tank Heater(UTH) both for warmth and proper digestion and all that good stuff.

(This time for a longer period) When I came back into the room, it was on the floor AGAIN. SO, I contacted chewy and told them the problem and they immediately sent me another heating mat, free of charge. While I was waiting on this second mat to show up I had a toothbrush I used for scrubbing the tank just laying around. Using the handle of the toothbrush, I put the mat back on the tank and with the toothbrush sideways and some force behind it and pressed down on the mat and ran the toothbrush up and and down it about 5 times. It hasn't fell off since! But just in case it does and decides not to go back on I have the spare! All in all, if you can find a better UTH, buy it! If you end up with this Zilla brand heat mat and have the same problem, all it needs is a little more force and a sturdy toothbrush! Once getting it to stick I was very pleased with its performance! … more
