heater

Post any questions you have about a turtle indoor setup here. Or if you have a link to your indoor setup picture we would love to see it.

For an aquarium, a submersible. The heating rock and mat aren\'t meant for aquatic reptiles. Only for lizards, snakes, geckos, knewts, ext. Land reptiles. If you have Land reptiles and are meaning to ask the quetion for land reptiles, my anoles like the mat better, and it\'s also safer for geckoes and knewts. Hope this helps.

i read this RES article and it said that with a heater there is more chances for the turtle to get an infection because of the difference in temp with the air and the water.
