    So I got an adjustable heat pad for my leopard geckos and I have a probe thermostat set up that tells me how hot the heat pad is and the heat pad temperature kept going down to 70 and up to 110 without me changing it. I had it set at 89-90 degrees Fahrenheit. But it kept a going down and up so I...

    Afternoon Folks :) Due to the warm weather I'm having difficulty keeping the cool end of my viv's down.

    Temps were fine yesterday. And then: I found the hot end probe marked with one dot on the pic (inside hide) was reading 97 so I knocked the stat down a bit. Then I put another probe (marked with 2 dots) on top of the same hide and it climbed fast to about 112!! I think the hide under the...

    Hi, I'm just testing out the heating in my new viv and trying to work out where to place the stat probes etc to get my hot end to have a basking spot of around 50C (for a uro). I'm using a 250W ceramic heater on a pulse stat and a 75w day sun bulb on a dimmer stat. I've got the probles all...

    As most owners of any Rhacodactylus species will undoubtedly be aware, “room temperature” is “ideal” for species within this genus. Of course, this is suitably vague, but “room temperature” can be further refined as being between 70-80°f (21-27°C). This temperature is generally easy to maintain...

    Picture the scene - a 4'x2'x2' wooden viv for desert setup. I plan to hang a SolaGlo 125W in a wire-guard, on for 12 hours, no stat. Ceramic heater on a pulse stat in wire guard, 24hours, statted to about 26C at the hot end, to stop it getting chill at night. ReptiGlo 10 tube for 12 hours, to...

    Hi, please help!!! I have a melamine viv for my leopard Geckos. I need to use a heat mat on the base (not the sides) so they can digest their food properly. The heat mat needs to go inside the viv not underneath as no heat would get through. Is it going to be safe to put kitchen towel on top of...
