I've found that if you do that you don't need a rheostat, enough heat escapes in the inch of breathing space to just heat the enclosure above to 90 F or so.
Yes this is true but a rheostat goes up as well as down. If your herp is sick and you want to increase the temp with a rheostat you don't need to lower you tank closer to the heat pad or move the pad to the tank or even adjust your substrate. All you do is adjust the rheostat.
