Smile New Snake questions :))

Hi everyone!

Iím looking into getting two corn snakes from a friend of mine soon, and Iím trying to research to make sure I have everything properly set up when I get them.

Right now, the two of them are still pretty small, so I was gonna start them off in two 20 Long tanks. I was planning on using aspen, as most people seem to agree that thatís a pretty good substrate for them, but Iím getting a little mixed up trying to figure out proper heating for them.

Right now, Iím looking at the Ipower 6Ē-8Ē heat mat, but iíve seen some people recommend 50-60w daytime bulbs, or heat emitters for them. I was just wondering what you all preferred.

I havenít started looking for things to go in the tank yet, but I know Iíll probably need a few flat slate pieces, hides, water bowl, and a few things to climb on like wood pieces/plants. I havenít decided if I want to try to establish a bio active tank yet, but I am at least somewhat considering it. I was wondering if cornsnakes required a dripper or something to keep the water from being still. Iíve been told some reptiles wonít drink from stagnant water.

Sorry to dump that on all of you, but this would be my first time owning a snake, and I really donít wanna do anything that could hurt either of my girls.
