Baby ball python setup help!

Hello, I need some help!
I purchased a rack that holds 41q tubs itís 3 feet deep (Iíll show photos) and I have 3 new baby ball pythons all are around 70 grams. I put them in a 6 qt sterlite with a lid. I pushed the tubs way back to the heat tape but not all the way so itís not just heat throughout. So with my hides and water bowl in place itís seams realllly crowded. Should I put them in a bigger tub with the same hide/water? Or should I get smaller bowls and hides. I was thinking about putting those plastic sauce containers (like at chipotle) as the water bowl but help me out!

Also is it okay for my to be putting those small tubs all the way back in this large rack?

I think you will be fine like this temporarily. Is that tape around the brim of the water bowls? What type of thermostat and thermometers are you working with? Amazing animals btw. Remember, baby / hatchling ball pythons prefer a cooler ambient and hot spot temperature target. Unless your room is already temperature controlled? Is the heat tape 3"?

Yes it’s electric tape but there’s zero exposed sticky areas, I already ordered new water bowls I used a handheld infrared thermometer, and since it was such short notice I’m using a zoo-med thermostat with a dial, it’s working fine for now but I also ordered a vivarium electronics hi-power thermostat for a rack system. I check the temperature every few hours just in case. The probe is taped down directly on the heat tape. The heat tape is 4 inches but as I mentioned I don’t push them all the way back! And thank you so much

Yep, i think you will be ok keeping the tubs where they are so the animals have just the back of the tub as the warm area. Sounds good.
