Hello, I have not bought anything yet. But had an idea after doing research. I was thinking about using a plastic water trough to hold the substrate in a custom enclosure. The plastic is resistant to UV, heat and cold, impact, and chemicals. The enclosure would be for a V. melinus hatchling. Inside of the water trough I would line it with heavy duty heating cables meant for heating soil for germination/seedlings etc. Afterwards I would cover it in epoxy resin, and have it hooked up to the proper probe and thermostat. Would this work? Are there better or cheaper ways? Is it overkill or not needed? Its cold about 3 months sometimes less a year here, around ten days total it freezes, barely. Also I was thinking 80*F would be the target, or would it be better with another temperature? Thanks for the help.
