Hi and welcome!

You've had good advice from the others.

I'm just wondering tho........ You have a lot of heat sources. No harm in that if they are on thermostats. But it makes me wonder where your thermometer is placed. The recommended warm side temp is about 30-33C but this is measured with the thermometer on the floor of the viv. Many peeps when they are new to Leos use mats as well as bulbs to try to achieve air temperatures 30-33C. The air temperature (which is what your thermometer will be measuring if you have it on the viv wall) is not as important as floor temp.
