I stopped using fluorescent heat lamps for it would dry up his tank way too fast and actually created fires - even the smallest one. I have a ceramic heat lamp and works really well and no problems. Not sure if I should cover the tank a bit to keep the heat in there or not.

And I wouldn't say he is a full grown male just yet. He is less then 3 years old and even though he is 32 inches long, he still looks like a young male - a teenager. This is his third year with me, but when I got him, I believe he was 2/3 months old. If he is fully mature and old enough to bred, I'd have to look into it for I do want to breed him since he has a mutant gene.
