how hot should the heating cable be

hi everyone,
so earlier today I got a heating cable for my hybrid nest mini. but then wondered, how hot should it be? I got a 15 watt cable and I am not sure if that is good enough. do I even need a cable? what if it melts the plastic?
thanks in advance

Re: water feature

hi, the design for my formicarium included a water fall and stream. after talking to some experts they said the ants would drown. i thought adding duckweed into the water would help, but what are your thoughts? i really don't want to scrap this design and start over. there are many species of ants ...

Re: Weaver colony

try putting in worms. the weaver ants depend on the health of the plants they nest in.
