Got a young chuck today!! He is just the friendliest little guy...little being subjective. He's around 9" long and just active and happy. Already eating in his new home.
Couple of questions...The seller, who's very well respected and recommended, suggested very strongly a heat rock...er, cave. I did get it, but haven't plugged it in. I got a heat and UV double fixture for above, setting it on my 29g tank. I keep reading that heat rocks are a terrible idea... your thoughts, please! It gets COLD here in the winter and our rooms often drop into the mid-low 30's. Though I'm home all day, I don't mind it at all and I'm not keen to run $500 electric/gas bills, so I leave it cold. During those months, could the heat rock be an advantage?
Any other suggestions ya'all might have, I'm interested to hear!
