Although i have a dimmer stat these measurements are without it.

Are these temps ok ?? if i was to use the dimmer (habistat 92f max) what spot should i use and were would you put probe ??

Thanks again.

115 sounds fine to me, I'm new to lizards myself but been told to start between 110-115 so 115 is spot on also when isit your lil girls bday wish her happy bday and hope she likes her BD, I'm setting mine up soon just building 4x2x2 myself and then to buy bits etc
