The reason I ask is, I got some free racks but the heat tape is melted in spots, and I need thermostats so this doesn't happen again. I was thinking about going with the bean farm. thanks, Chris

What do you need I have tons of heat tape and maybe even a helix left I can set you up with.

I could use some heat tape and a helix if he doesnt want it!

But the other day I went ahead and compared prices on a few reptile supply sites

Bean Farm



Bean Farm was by far the most expensive on all products I compared. LLLReptile was ok but didnt have a good selection or alot of items I needed. Reptilebasics.com was very good and cheaper then the rest, they especially have a good deal on a prewired ranco thermostat. I;m actually about to place an order with them, either for there theremostat, or a large scale with some probes depends on which one I want this week, and the other will be next pay check!

But seriously Thomas if Chris doesnt want the heat tape and the helix id love it depending on the condition and the price. Just PM me. Hope this post helps u find a good place to shop for herp supplies Chris!

Coldbloodedcages.com sells the herpstats with free shipping. Several times during the year they put them on sale. I have ordered herpstats from them a couple of times and received $20 to $25 off retail. Doesn't sound like much but the herpstats are worth every penny. I am running 2 NDs, a herpstat 2 and a PRO. I would not use anything else now that I have the herpstats.
