dont use it on turtles. this is not a water safe produce. i would only recommend this for inverts. with cation of getting it wet though and i would still use a thermostat for them. your safer off with a heat pad or a lamp.

I definitely would NOT put in water. I have only ever used hot rocks on dry surfaces. Read the instructions on any heat element you put in water. Some small fish tank heater may work. Check the water level or you'll blow out your fish tank heater.

No, you can't submerge it in water.
The rock is water-proof, meaning it can get splashed, but the instructions say it is not submersible. I'm not sure what would happen, but finding out probably isn't worth the risk.
You can get an aquarium heater for your turtle, which is what I use for my red-eared slider. There are different wattages for different sized tanks.

I don't think a hot rock puts out enough heat to warm a cage. I used a red light bulb in a metal hood (see local hardware store) and clamped it on the outside of my cockatiel's cage. It was only about a 25w bulb. It helped at night (we had heating issued in Arkansas during the winter).

You can leave it plugged in. That way, your gecko can get warm whenever she pleases.
I always leave mine plugged in for my little box turtle. I've never had any problems with it.

Question

would this work for a Veiled Chameleon

I am thinking abut buying one but I don't want to buy anything really expensive, it looks pleasing and would work in a habitat, but I am just not sure.
