Default New Hedgie & ReptiTherm Under-Tank Heater, HELP!

Im new to the forum and am also getting a new hedgie tomorrow!

I bought the ceramic heat emitter and even with the lowest temperature was keeping the cage too warm. I returned the CHE and got the Reptitherm Under-Tank Heater. The heater has been keeping the cage at about 72 degrees and is perfect but I have only had it installed for about 2 hours. The packaging says it could take 6 hours to heat up all the way. I have the Rheostat temperature controller on the lowest setting and it has been perfect. But like i said it could take 6 hours to heat up all the way.

If anyone has the under-tank heater, can you tell me if it doesn't actually take that long and if it works out well for you and your hedgie...

Thank You Warmly,

CHE is better for the hedgie. it will warm up the air and not the just the floor. What you need is this: ... ce=froogle

It works with a CHE light and only puts it on when it is needed to be put on. It can even be set to whatever temperature you want it to be at.
