    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!

  • Does The Job

    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

    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!

  • This is a great product when used correctly

    I've been raising reptiles for 10+ years now, and this model of heat pad is one of my favorite go-to's. This product gets warm enough to please the reptiles but does not get hot enough to scorch their bellies like electric heat rocks will. One should note, however, that this won't change the temperature of the air in the cage itself so thermometers may not be a reliable way of judging if the reptile has enough heat. Don't use it near water or on fish aquariums because it can cause glass to crack. This pad also takes several hours to warm up all the way so don't throw it out if it doesn't get hot immediately. I recommend the pad for nocturnal snakes, nocturnal lizards, spiders, scorpions, and I've been raising reptiles for 10+ years now, and this model of heat pad is one of my favorite go-to's.

If you get the large model, plug it into a compatible thermostat to control the temps because it is a very powerful heater. Great product overall … more

  • Awesome price and does it's job well

    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

    The 8w mat has been in use under my corn snake's glass tank for about 3 weeks and has been doing an awesome job of keeping the warm hide cozy.

  • best brand heat mat

    By on

    I also own a smaller version of this. I've owned it for 4 years now and it still works 100% perfect. So this is the only brand I will use.
