Good Substrate for my Leos?

I have 2Juvenile Leopard Geckos and a Zilla Under Tank Heater (has no adjustment on it). I know a peel-and-stick tile is okay to use but is this brand okay? And with the under-tank heater?

I would be concerned that the adhesive and vinyl would outgas something toxic. I wouldn't personally risk it at all.

Also, I think the point of using tile is so you can remove the tile to clean it.

You should not use an undertank heat mat without a controlling device. It will not keep a stable temperature, and it WILL overheat sooner or later, and may burn your animals. A thermostat is best, but a rheostat will do if your home temps are stable.
