I am looking for a small to medium radiant heat panel and a thermostat for a 30x24x12 visions cage, or instructions on how to build one.

Honestly I love reptile basics, but not for their heat panels or thermostats.

The best heat panels come from, and they can even build / size it for you appropriately based off cage size, speices, ambient room temps. etc.

http://pro-products.com/

As for thermostats, hands down the best on the market are herpstats (herp 1, herp2, and the herp4)

Alternatively you get a good T-Stat you can use THG heat tape (from reptile basics) and sufficiently heat any visions cage even in cooler ambient room temps. I keep my reptile room around 78-80 degrees. I have a visions thats 30 x 28 x 18 I use a a 1.5' section of heat tape on it that is 12" wide, so if you run cooler temps use 2 - 1.5' sections of 12" wide and you should be good to go.

of course Heat Panels from Pro Products are more efficent and better overall heat (working on switching to them primarily for heat)

I've never had a problem with RHP from RBI after years of use.
