Terrarium heating is essential for many exotic species. For heating tanks we can use various heating devices, which can be divided into two main groups – heating mats and cables as well as lapmy and radiant heaters. In our shop you will choose a heating system that fits your tank.

Most exotic animals bred in houses come from tropical or subtropical areas. As a result, they often require a higher temperature than that in our homes. The right ambient temperature for a specific species is the key to the health and well-being of our animals. At least one of the solutions available on the market must be implemented to ensure the right temperature. Terrarium heating devices can be divided into two main groups - heating mats and cables, as well as light bulbs and radiant heaters. Depending on the requirements of the tenants, the construction and design of the tank, one or more solutions can be used simultaneously. In dry terrariums, desert terrariums or terrariums requiring little air humidity and dry ground, mats or heating cables mounted on the bottom of the tank or on one of the walls will work well. This solution causes the substrate in the terrarium to heat up and the animal heats up lying on heated sand or stone. An additional advantage of the heating cable can be a great freedom of arrangement, which allows to obtain both warmer zones (dense arrangement of the cable) and cooler ones by increasing the distance between parts of the cable. Heating in a tropical terrarium, planted with a large number of live plants, with a thick base layer at the bottom requires a completely different solution. Using a heat source located underneath or behind the wall could have a very negative effect on the plants. The high temperature affecting the roots and the rapid drying of the bottom-heated substrate disqualifies the use of mats or heating cables in such tanks. Instead, consideration should be given to installing a heating bulb or radiator. These heat up the air from above without drying the substrate so drastically. REMEMBER! Some species do not feel the excessive heat affecting their bodies! This can lead to serious, painful burns and even death! Secure the heat source and monitor the temperature in the tank. A thermometer and a thermostat connected to the heat source will help you to maintain the right temperature.
