My room gets very cold at night, sometimes as low as 63F. I currently keep my tadpoles in a sterilite container with water and a heater that maintains the temperature at 73F. However, I am running out of room and need to find a better solution to house a lot of tads at one time while heating them as well.

The second problem is that I have only a limited space for them. Its 24 inches deep by 18 wide. Height is not an issue.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

Something like a converted wine cooler or even a regular cooler that you've converted might work. I've done similar things for snake incubation.

The bathroom! Every time there's a temp drop here in MI my bathrooms like an incubator. Most bathrooms possess a heat vent and are relatively small. If you live alone or with someone who don't mind, keep them in the bathtub! Or I'm sure you can find a plastic drawer / rack system for pretty cheap. Close that bathroom door and they're good to go. Besides that, I agree with the space heater.

I agree with the space heater. I have a very large basement room that's slowly becoming a frogroom. One $30 space heater heats the entire room. Sometimes it gets too toasty depending on outside temps.

The bathroom...as mentioned...I used to have my crickets, dubias, and other such in the bathroom in big Rubbermaid tubs--so appearance and smell was minimal.

I've used a Zilla Temp controller and plugged in a clamp lamp with a 100 watt bulb with success, I kept the tad containers in a closet.
