Tub size an probe placement.

Just got my C serpents V70 3 tub rack unit in..
I have a few questions.
My three female ball pythons are 900-plus grams 1300 plus grams and 1500 grams there in a 28 quart tub now I'm wondering if it's too soon to put them in the 41 quart..

Next question is since I have multiple rack units do I need to place the probe in a different spot I currently have it on the middle Shelf of the 28 quarts 3 tub unit... I'm not sure if I'm going to stack the units or put them side-by-side since they're different sizes..

Unless your thermostat is a model that can take two inputs from two different probes to handle two different heat sources, you will need a second thermostat for the CSerpents V70 rack.

The three females will be fine in the V70 tubs though I would give them each a hide. Put the water bowl up front and the hide in the back, so the snake can "turtle" the hide onto and off of the heat as needed.

No my thermostat has only one probe but I'm going to run both rack units off of one probe I just want to know where to place the probe whether I put them side-by-side or stack them

The only way to safely run two heat sources off of one thermostat is if they are identical. If the racks have different lengths of heat tape or a differing number of levels, one will be too hot or too cold.
