Well once the Indigo is large enough for a big enclosure I don't see much of an issue with keeping a temp on one side in the 80 degree range and one side at my house room temp of 73-74 degrees, but what about the small enclosures that these guys are housed in for quite some time as they grow up. I'm reading about shoe box size to start with the juveniles and then sweater box size next up. They seem so small and with just something like paper lining the bottom I'm having a hard time of finding something that would not just heat the entire enclosure. And probably heat it too much. What do you experienced guys use for this? Just looking for recommendations on maybe certain heating pads that are relatively small, maybe they don't get too hot, or what kind of regulator you guys use on them to keep these small enclosures at just the right temps.

It doesn't sound like my house temps of 73 degrees would work and I don't have a full blown reptile room which I maintain temps higher than the rest of my house.

Thanks,

Brian
