Hi, congrats first of all . You definitely should have a stat of some kind, although I don't run day/night one as I only have the basking light on during the day. I have the basking light connected to the stat, my UV and the stat is connected to a timer, with a 12on 12 off cycle. Therefore I don't provide heating at night. I don't feel that it is necessary as the temp in my house is always about 20 degrees and a temp drop at night is completely natural anyway. Don't be tempted by a red light either as bearded dragons can see this spectrum and it should be dark at night for them (and red light is ugly anyway). Hope this helps
