ReptoHeat Dual Temp Basking Heater is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice addition. I recieved this heater by winning the the " Bask in the warmth " contest. The heater does work. The biggest issue I found is the turtle needs to get close to it. It looked much better then the heat lamp on the top. But I added the heat lamp back to the tank along with the heater. My turtle will stay under the heater at night when the lights are out but during the day she prefers the hotter temperature from the outdoor spotlight which works way better then a heat lamp bulb. I have the other light for her vitamin needs for the day also. But for the night she only had the heated water now with this heater she can come out of the water and stay warm. It would be five five stars if it lightly blew the heat so the turtle didnt have to get so close. But overall a great product that will let the animal bask without the big ugly basking lamp.

What would be the settings for a red eared slider?

Asked by: AAMRAMM
Thank you for your question! That depends on where you place your dock or how high the water is in the tank. I keep mine set on high, and the water level is about 4"- 6" down. I like deep water though, so that my turtle has lots of swimming room, and I do not heat my water. This is a more natural state for turtles. If you tend to keep your water level really low, you will definitely need the high setting. If the water is heated and up higher in the tank, the low setting would work. BREX

How hot dose this get ? I need it to heat a 40 gallon breeder for my bearded dragons.  Needs tk be around 105-115  would this be a good heater for them or would u stick with a heat lamp? 

Asked by: Dragon lady
This heater is for basking purposes and will not heat the entire tank. It will heat a basking area approximately 5" below the top of the tank to the temperature you seek when set on high. BREX

How does this work for bearded dragons, savannah monitor, etc.

Asked by: Dragonfly88
Place the unit approximately 5-6 inches away from the basking spot in the tank, then set the switch to high or low, depending on your preference. BREX

I have hedgehog in a cage which will require around 75-80 degrees F in the winter.  Will it work for this application?

Asked by: Hedgie
No, it is not that type of heater, it is for basking animals. The main recommendations for keeping hedgehogs warm is to utilize a heating pad under a corner of the cage with a lot of fleecy bedding or to use a heating lamp on one end of the cage. In both cases, have a good heat source at one end, with room for the hedgehog to move away, if it needs to do so. Keep in mind most heating sources, being electrical, can pose a safety risk and use them wisely. Here is a link that may help: http://hedgehogheadquarters.com/secure/warm.htm BREX

I have a terrarium with 2 box turtles. I now have 2 heat lamps on top of the glass terrarium. Is there a different type of heater that will fit inside the terrarium that will work for night and day. The lights on the top look ugly.

Asked by: Lil penny sue
Not that we make, no. The Repto Heat does not go inside the tank, it clamps to the top frame of the tank or can rest on a screened top. It is intended for the animal to climb up and bask under it, like the lights, which makes it available for use at night time as well as day time, but it is not any more capable of being hidden than the lights.

Should I have a UV light and a heater? I currently have one painted turtle that I've had for around a year now. I do not have any heat lamps but I do have a water heater and a UV light. Should I have a heat lamp like this too?

Asked by: turtlelover123
Aquatic turtles require water temps around 70-74 degrees maximum, but do require air temps of around 95 degrees, for basking purposes. Therefore, room temperature is usually fine, whereas you generally need a basking light or heater for the air temperature at least 8-12 hours per day for the turtle to properly bask. You definitely need a UVB lamp as well since they cannot process Vitamin D on their own. BREX
