Default Crestie night temperature drop

Just wondering if other crestie owners provide a night drop for theirs. We heat ours using a infrared bulb during the day but turn it off at night,we use an infrared so that when the weather turns colder at night we can keep it on. Temps during the day are 26c at the hottest down to 23c in the cooler part night drop down 20c.

Thanks x.

I just turn all my heating off at night and let it drop naturally. My house is pretty warm anyway though. I'm sure a gradient at night will do no harm though.
