DollysMom, this made me remember...

Back in the late 1970's through the early 80's, my mom kept tropical fish. She used under-gravel filters with powerheads for water circulation and to pull waste down to the bottom to promote better water quality. This was before the internet. She joined an international group of tropical fish fanciers that corresponded via actual written letters. In Europe, they had sponge filters that attached to the powerheads so the water was actually cleaned while it was circulated. One of her friends over there helped her buy them and then mailed it all to her. It let her expand from a 20 long tank to a 55 long (if I remember it right) with less maintenance!
I'm sure our kindred spirits "over there" wherever they may be, have some excellent practices and products that we just don't have. I'd like more info on how people keep snakes over there. Maybe it could be a thread?

Dave might benefit from an undertank heater if you don't have one yet.

The cage setup looks great, I second climbing sticks, and if you wrap it in some vines, your little guy will hide out in them!

Apologies for such a late reply... yes it's his heat source, as his viv us wooden a understand heater wouldn't suffice, I have changed the bulb since to a ceramic version so I can better his night/day cycles. Dave is doing Well, growing so quickly (26g now so he's added 10 grams)
