 Heating in Tub enclosure

I searched prior to this but was unable to find any info. Seeing as how you cant really have an overhead lamp for heating in a tub, is it safe to use an UTH stuck to the bottom of the plastic? I just bought a 41qt tub, but i was unsure if the UTH would burn or even melt the plastic on the bottom. Any advice will be helpful. Thanks

Iíve got my neonate bloods in that kind of set up, works fine. They have a 88-90 basking spot.

So the under tank heater doesnt harm the plastic? Do you have a thermostat for it?

I did a little more searching and found that without a thermostat damage is likely to occur. Where can I get a thermostat for my Zoo med UTH?

You need to use a thermostat with a UTH reguardless of a plastic or glass enclosure. Try MgReptiles.com, good prices, great guy.

No problem, which one did you end up going with? Did you check out that thermostat comparison sheet he has on there? I always thought that was really helpful.

I got two of those you couldíve had for free. No offense, but theyíre trash imo. I put them in my blood tank and set them at 90. It went from 85-100 without me fooling around with anything.
