Well, the cage itself is a Boaphile-- half of the 6 foot one so three feet long, and I think just around 2 feet deep?? Not quite sure of that part, I haven't personally measured it myself in a while. X'D

For temps and Humidity: One UTH hooked to a Thermostat set to 95 degrees Fahrenheight, and damp EcoEarth (Coco Figer Bedding) mixed with ReptiBark as Substrate.
My humidity is actually pretty amazingly high-- not enough to cause problems since I am sure it won't stay this high for more than a couple of days, but for future reference to anyone I would suggest only making the substrate SORT of damp if you're using a plastic terrarium like mine. It holds in temps well, but also holds in humidity like a champ. X'D

After that I just have the classical stuff: Two hides, one on hot side one on cold side, a water bowl big enough for him to soak in if he wants, and then some decorative plants and logs and whatnot to let him climb/give more cover to make him more secure.

...I think I got everything! XD

So far with the UTH on a Thermostat, I think it will work out well. I have heard REAL good things about Radiant Heat Panels too though! So if you can, I would suggest grabbing those over a UTH if you can install it/have it pre-installed.

Re: Your Set-up Photos

And yes it is!
They eat more than they likely should. XD But that seems quite fine! As long as he has actually pooped for you already and showed he has bowl movement, it should be fine~

Mine did that in the beginning too, but now he poops regularly after every other feeding!

Re: Your Set-up Photos

bottom viv is 4ft long 2ft wide and 2ft height

Top viv is my 5 month old pastel python, he has a 100w ceramic heat bulb on a dimmer thermostat with a white/blue led on a 12hr timer, hes on eco earth substrate with repti bark on top, temps 90c hot end 75c cooler end with ambient temp of 80c humidity 55% up too 80% if I spray the viv down.

Any tips or criticism appreciated

Many thanks
