Default trouble keeping getting correct tempretures

im setting up a viv for a chinese water dragon and my basking spot is all fine at around the 90F mark
but its the rest of the viv i cant really get to about 84F its sticking around 75-80F
and my current night temp is 73F which is too low

any suggestions on how to get it warmer without spending loads of money ?

well my current night tempreture right now is 70F
and it idealy needs to be 75 to 80 degrees F
so i dont need it to increase by a great deal
and also my day time tempretures dont need that much more so im not sure what i can do to increase the tempretures that little bit more

just play around with where you position the heat probe thing, till you find the
right place, where it works best

Use a higher wattage bulb (ordinary or ceramic) and use a thermostat if you are not already. As said before play around with the position of the stat probe until you get the desired temps.
