hello again, so I just finished ranting to my mom about tanks vs. tubs, and i seem to have gotten her on my side about tubs... so what kind of tubs should I look into? im not looking for a rack because i only one one ball, soon to be two, so I only need two tubs... i also need to know heating control and stuff.
I use 15 quart sterilite tubs with locking lids for any of my BPs under 800 grams, from there I upgrade them to 32 quart tubs until about 2000 grams, and then one last upgrade to a slightly larger tub.
Or you can just go to the biggest size tub you can fit right away and add more hides and cover. The problem with people having small snakes not eat in larger tubs is because they stick to the two hides rule and leave the animal with all this extra space which to them is a death trap. People who start off with huge enclosures for baby or small animals fill in as much space as they can with hides, cork bark and other things to create various places around the enclosure to create safe spots. Saving money isn’t a big deal since tubs aren’t that expensive but you also wont have to worry about the animal having to readjust with every move to a bigger enclosure.
Babies in the wild don’t get the option of small ‘baby’ areas to grow up in, what they do get is natural cover and lots of it.
