Under the enclosure heat mat always on and a light bulb during the day. I'm planning on getting a red bulb to increase the heat during the day. I also need a ton of other goodies, will keep you guys posted ;)

Mine is definitely underfed, pet store told me they used to feed him once 3 weeks, when he needs food once a week.

"but they get so huge ...."

Uhhhh.....ball pythons can get 6' long, iggys can get to around 5'...... B)

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Oh, i didn't spoke my mind exactly, was thinking more to the enclosure they need, even if they stay at the same length, or one more than the other.

A 6' long ball python requires like 30 - 40 gallons ( even so a 20 would do just fine for life ). On the other hand iggy can get to 6' in the first 4-5 years, they need way way more room, they need to be able to stretch full length in any part of the temperature gradient, not to speak about the height they need as they climb on trees, so a 6x6x6 would set them for life ? maybe

Basicly comparing Potamotrygon orbignyi with an Oscar, both can get to >13" right ? Would you keep the first one in a standard 55 ? I wouldn't, they are not able to use the height of the tank for movement like an Oscar does, so a bigger footprint tank would be recommended ( like my 210 can house one adult ? ).

Sorry for the confusion :)
