    I normally have under tank heaters fitted buthave had to put one inside tank temporarily, I`ve placed some felt substrate on top of it and then placed the hide in that area. Will a heat mat directly under a substarte be ok??

    Is it regulated with a thermostat? If not then it is definitely dangerous. If it has a thermostat then as long as it doesn't get wet it should be fine temporarily. But can I ask why you put it directly in the tank?

    Any heat pad can be dangerous without a way to regulate its output, with the best way being the already mentioned thermostat.
