so i found a couple that are close to me. they have multiple morphs. I am purchasing a pastel male from them on Sunday for 50 dollars. I handled him and he seems to be in great shape and they seem knowledgable. She said they payed 125 for him at a show and she is only going to charge me 50. Is that a good deal? he seems to be about 16 inches long or so with beautiful markings.

i found a 30 gallon tank. My wife is weary about it getting out do the metal clips work for keeping the mesh top secure? Should i use a heat lamp or an UTH?

What type of substrate do i use ? i have read that the UTH can burn the snake. It just worries me i dont want to harm him. She also told me i can bathe him in a little dawn dish soap and water then towel dry him to keep him clean and mite free.

...dawn won't kill mites if it has any-i use aspen(but treat it with PAM (provent a mite) to be safe.)-mite eggs can be deep in the scales and hatch later-baths and soaking will not kill those to my knowledge. FYI, if the snake currently has mites I would pass on that deal and find one from a reputable breeder

i just picked up what i believe to be a 55 gallon aquarium and a heat lamp from a friend. Got some aspen substrate and a really cool looking turtle shell hide that should be great for my pastel. What wattage bulb should i use?
