I also have a small retic in a 40 gallion and i'm using a similar setup as you are.

Under tank heating pad under about 1/4 of it, one 40 watt party bulb in red for night light and one 60 watt ceramic all on the heat end.

What I did is build a shelf on the heating pad end.4 pieces of wood, 2 sides, one shelf on top and one in the center. So 3 levels for my girl to choose from at varying temperatures. I also use small towls on that enter under the shelf with her water bowl on top of 1/4 of the heating pad so humidity can rise and daily I will spill her water when i change it. So the small towl will hold moisture and help humidify the enclosure.

Just my temp setup until I can build her something in the next few months that will last a few years.

Just be sure to get her a nice *cozy* spot thats 90 or so. If she's stressed she may pick a dark cold spot and you cant have that with a possible URI and mite stress.

Have fun, Randy.

PS If anyone has any great retic enclosure plans Im all ears.
