The probe goes on the mat outside the viv how high to set the temps really varies dramatically dependant on the ambient temperature in the room in average room temps i would suggest maybe 10 degrees higher than your desired tank heat however it will be a game of trial and error to get it right for your room. If your house is paticularly cold you may need to put all the way up to max. Its a question i really can not answer for you im afraid. I dont know the room temperature. The stength of the mat the size of the mat the thickness of the glass the contents of the tank. All these are varying factors. The more packed out the tank for example the more it will trap the heat inside.
