We are using the heat rope which is CSA approved, comes in a variety of lenghts and watts and has a plug in already attached. A single strand running under the tubs is keeping the back of our cornsnake tubs on the rack at 83 degrees when the room temp is about 72 degrees. This is with some reduction in power through a rheostat. Great stuff in my opinion - but a bit more costly than the heat tape - I just didn't feel too confident in wiring the heat tape myself and the heat rope (from Port Credit or Big Apple - not the heat cable from Can Tire used for melting ice or heating pipes) was nice becuase you can just string it along and plug it in,
