    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!

  • Awesome price and does it's job well

    By on

    I have 2- 10 gallon terrariums and so far it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Applying was super easy and self explanatory following the directions. I used something with a flat edge with a little weight to smooth the pad onto the bottom of the tank. I ordered a small so I don't expect it to get super hot. It seems warm enough for our little leapord geckos. I felt them getting warm probably within the first 5-8 minutes. The pad has come off on part of the pad that's closer to the cord once on each one but I was able to get it to stick back to the glass. I will be keeping an eye on it to make sure it stays. As for the small little raisers they could be a little more stickier as they don't I have 2- 10 gallon terrariums and so far it does exactly what it's supposed to do.

As for the small little raisers they could be a little more stickier as they don't stay on well but I have had to move their tanks a few times as they were Christmas presents for the kiddos. I did loose a couple for each tank but used a chunk of an eraser for the corners that I lost. If I find the ones intended for the tank I will hot glue them on. But for now the eraser chunks work just as good and seem to be the same thickness making the tank even. Overall I'm 100% satisfied with the heat pad itself. Delivery came as expected. … more

  • Much better

    By on

    The overhead heat lamp was causing the whole tank to be too warm, this is much better since it is only on one side of the tank and underneath so the heat rises from under the bedding. We plugged in to the Zilla thermostat which turns it on and off to maintain a preset temp, and now don't need worry about our corn snake being comfortable. Love it!

  • Does The Job

    By on

    I have owned Zilla pads for several years and replaced them only due to age, not malfunction. They stick well but they have to stay where you put them. Maybe one day they will be able to make a static one that can be moved to accommodate changes in the habitat. That would be my only complaint.

  • Warm and cozy

    By on

    My previous heat source for the snake tank was a warming lamp. We moved the tank to a spot that the lamp wouldn't work in, so I decided to try to heat mat. It is great! Easy to install, adhered easily to the tank, and provides the warmth needed. The snake is far more active now!

  • Great for a Leopard gecko!

    By on

    My leo likes to sit in his hot hide and on top of it. The heat mat is the perfect temperature for my leo so I don't need a thermostat, you might though. This is a great heat mat.

  • Perfect for my Ball Pythons

    By on

    I needed a bigger and higher wattage mat for my BPs to help get their bins heated more and the 24watt did the trick. No more humidity or heat issues

  • Works Great!

    By on

    Works great in my leopard geckos 10 gallon tank. Only issue was it didn't stick too well, but I easily reenforced it with heat resistant tape.
