Keeping vivarium warm


New Member
Hey folks,
With the onset of the colder weather I am wanting to keep my girl's environment warm enough. I've already got a heat mat attached to the back wall of the vivarium then covered it with foil to reflect the residual heat towards the tank.
Currently I've got the mat on full, but it doesn't seem to be making much of a difference to the point where the ambient temperature inside the vivarium was 19 degrees this morning.
I've been thinking of getting some polystyrene sheeting and covering the vivarium back and sides in order to keep it insulated enough.
Any other tips would be welcome too.
