Hey all. I recently purchased some used enclosures and have attempted to fix them up. I've been trying to figure out how I can get artificial lighting into the enclosure without being able to see a big bulb or something hanging off the top. The idea is this light will help simulate a day/night cycle and also increase visibility. I came up with the idea of using strip led lighting on the lip just above the sliding glass (eg its facing INTO the enclosure not downwards). Now this lighting does use a sticky adhesive backing which was a major concern so I've set it up in an enclosure with no animals inside as a test run. I've also been running the heat for extended periods of time on these recent hot days to see if the adhesive is going to hold. All in all the lights have stuck nicely and have not come off after 6 days of high ambient temps + heating (in normal circumstances the heat would not be on in this weather) I have also placed blu-tack at the ends to ensure the snake can't *peel* it off. As you can see though the lights are actually quite bright and I'm concerned this may irritate the animal, though there is still plenty of dark nooks for hiding. So my questions are: Am I playing with fire using essentially sticky tape inside the enclosure? Is Blu-Tak safe for snakes? Also how does it go with heat (so far its been fine)? Are the bright lights simply going to irritate the animal? Remember the lights are facing inwards. A few notes about the setup: The plastic container is ice, I want my diamond to go in here so I'm trying to see if I can get a suitable gradient even on crazy hot days like what we've been having recently. So far I can get it to around 24-25 near the container. The white strip you see on the wall is from the previous owner, I assume they used double sided tape to hold up some kind of pad or aesthetic piece. Its no longer sticky but I plan to get it off with metho and a scraper. Thanks for reading!
