    If you aren’t confident in using store brand cleaners, you are better off waiting for the ability to f10 as all you do is follow the ratios for what you want, spray a bit on each side of tank, wait 10mins (or less) for it to do its thing, wipe with paper towel, ur done.

    Also quick tip: water first, solution second when mixing, otherwise you end up with 90% bubbles

    Brumation and hibernation are two completely different things.
    While you will have to brumate to get your snakes into ‘breeding mode’, many will argue that brumating snakes regardless on whether or not you plan on breeding is beneficial to their help.

    PP may have worded it a bit strongly, I have to agree. Are you serious? Use some common sense. While the forum can HELP you, we’re not here to hold your hand and think for you.
    Snakes aren’t as easy in terms of husbandry as a cat or dog. Since there isn’t as much known about them many of us are pretty much figuring out obstacles as we reach them, so you better get used to thinking on your toes.

    If you can’t afford to buy all the necessities, don’t buy the snake. If you can’t afford F10, how will you buy food for your snake? What if the light bulb fails? What if the snake gets mites and you need mite spray? What if the glass cracks? What if something breaks? What if you get a faulty thermostat? What if...
    the list goes on. Personally I like to have a bit extra on the side for my animals- whether it be emergency vet bills (or in the case of the snakes more likely a bust light bulb or more food).

    Have everything bought and ready BEFORE you get the snake as well as a little bit extra on the side

    The less chemicals in this world the better. If you have one snake in one cage then it is extremely unlikely that any strange bugs will be introduced into what is essentially a closed system. Why would you puff chemicals into that closed environment on a regular basis? If it aint broken , don't fix it as the repair may cause the problem. All these amazing new chemicals, for the most time, benefit the chemical companies not your snake. If you are using chemicals regularly, at least you can be confident that if you snake gets sick it will be from a chemical resistant strain!

    Bleach is acceptable especially when rinsed down and allowed to dry, because it breaks down in water/air.

    If you were cleaning something were you were particularly worried about disease, mould or bacterial, bleach wouldn't cut it as it doesn't kill all the concerning things, but for general cleaning is fine.

    Do avoid scented cleaners if you can, things like pine o clean are not so great for animals

    Thanks for all your help guys. Really appreciate it. When I order my thermostat and heat gun, I’m going to order f10 with it off eBay. Thank you for everything!

    Why waste time cleaning, just use disposable cardboard and glad wrap cages.
