Yes I'd recommend to buy a reptile one heating cable, safe, waterproof and relatively cheap.

Here is a link to the online product, you should be able to find it at your local pet store.

You'll probably find the Zoo Med Repti Heat Cable easier to find in the US. Amazon for example, or your local pet store. 15 Watt is what I am using.

Yeah I've been using it for a week now. You're supposed to leave it on 24/7 right?
