Im also going to get some fake plants and greenery too.


The next one is just my positioning of the thermostat and thermometer probe, I have the thermostat probe dangling down from the top vent as suggested with the probe of the digital thermometer on top of the hide, the temps on top of the hide are around 88 Fahrenheit, the cool side ground temps are 73 ish rising to about 76 - 77 higher up towards the coconut, im measuring these temps with an IR thermometer gun by the way.


And the last one is just a side view


So any thoughts on the setup? Anything I can add or improve on? Are the temps okay etc...?
I'd reduce the basking temp to 82. Otherwise it all looks fine.
