If it is hard to understand, you might not know enough to complete the job. Your questions reveal a possible lack of insight into basic wiring or comprehension of the specifications listed in the literature you have cited.
What criteria did you use to select this particular thermostat?

Why not ask the reptiles - they will tell you when it's warm enough.

Go to you pet store and buy a thermostat designed for that. To use a regular thermostat you not only need a 24v supply but you're also going to have to use a contactor (big relay) to energize the heating cable.

Zimer had written this in response to http://thestuccocompany.com/hvac/Re-need-help-with-honewwell-t6800D-28700-.htm : i know that, but i don't care. i just want to know how to wire it. with the relay and all.

Maybe if you actually read the installer instructions?? If thats too complicated for you, then you need to *PAY* somebody that knows WTF they are doing.
*NOBODY* on here is going to hold your hand and give you "insert tab A into slot B" instructions. Get over it.

We need to know more about the parts you have on hand, before we can be any help.
But in general terms, you need to use the heating contacts within the thermostat to control a suitable voltage and current. This will operate a relay or contactor, which will control the power to the larger heating device.

Here's one sample but there are documents all over the internet with the wiring codes on them, they are pretty standard. A simple search will find lots of them. And with a ohm meter you can confirm the leads you plan to use are being closed as expected.

You understand you need to have the thermostat close a 24vac contactor to energize the heat cable, right? You can pick up a 24 vac transformer at most home supply stores. For the contactor you'll probably need to go to a supply house. An appliance or hvac supply house will have something suitable but they are not usually in the mode of helping you find a suitable part. They are more like you tell them a part number and they tell if they have it. The appliance supply places tend to be a bit more helpful to non-professionals than the hvac places. You could also get one on-line and that may be easier. As long as it handles the current your heat cable uses it will be fine.
