Default stupid temp question

Prob the stupidest thing you will read buttttt...... Does the viv temp have to drop at night or can it just stay at the required daytime temp gradients between hot n cold end?

Depends on what's in the viv. If its your brb then I believe the temps should remain constant but I am no expert maybe other brb keepers can advise.

It's not IMPERATIVE, just gives the animal a sense of "time" more than anything, if you don't give it a drop give it a warm hide and somewhere on the cooler side to hide and when he/she gets to warm he/she will go bask at the warm side or cool at the cool side if either gets too much, did you look at the link I showed you to my RUB? i just give him a hide over the heat mat and just a pile of damp spaghnum moss at the cool end for him

If you have any concerns, doubts or worries about your animals health always consult a qualified veterinarian (with the necessary experience).

Nobody can properly diagnose an animal based on descriptions and photos. Especially when those animals, such as reptiles, have a small list of visible symptoms than can be found across a large range of problems.

Always see a vet. Don't let strangers on the internet make you do something you'll regret. They won't take responsibility.

Personally I don't drop my temp either and he is fine, just bought a female for him and she'll be under the same conditions, I keep him at around 29-32c on his hotspot, if it gets to warm they'll move and cool down, so long as they have enough heat to get as warm as they need to be when they need it, they'll pretty much look after themselves
