    I have a 3ft Viv with a heat mat covering 1/3 of the Viv controlled by a mat-stat, the temp us set to under 90 and the warm side is reading higher than 90 internally and the cold side around 70 Any help would be appreciated Would it be worth getting a fan controlled by a thermostat?

    Hi Guys, I was wanting some advise on how to keep the ambient temps up in the RUB for a royal? Is the heat mat the only required heat source? I have thought about putting oak bark in the RUB and mist it to keep humidity up as well as putting a third hide on the hot side with moss inside. I...

    Just a quick question on how you guys/girls measure the temperatures of your leopard gecko and where your probe is for the digital thermometer/thermostats. I currently have my digital thermometer probe at ground (substrate) level - on the reptile carpet. Is this correct? Or should it be a...
