I don't see the need for a hide on the hot side at all. I have a hide on the cool side and it's where mine stay 99% of the time. I see them on the hot side in the mornings and the late afternoons, that's it!

I give mine a condo, I've tried the clear ones they work ok, I've given them a purple one and a green one (only two colors they had at the time). They prefer the color ones to the clear one, but will use the clear one but will bury themselves inside the cloth. That's why I experimented with the colored ones. I elevate it by using pvc end pieces, which also serves as another hide also. The inside is a micro fiber cloth that I rinse and clean weekly. It stays moist and they sleep in it every night. Well at least until the room temperature starts to be around 80 ambient, then will only use it when they go into shed.

These are from the Dollar Store.









These work great and I just add some rocks for them on the hot side....there is a uth on the bottom of the rock side (hot side).
