too cold

  1. Lizards
    I've toyed with the idea of getting a leo before, however I opted to go for a corn snake instead at the time. I am however still considering one, I have recently acquired some free space in my sitting room, enough for a 4 x 2 x 2 vivarium. I'm a bit worried the room may be too cold though...

    I have a 24*8*15 inch viv for my leopard gecko. I have a 6*11 inch 7W Habistat heat mat. I have a 100W Habistat thermostat. It has now been on for about 11 hours and the temperature read is at 28.7 degrees. (Thermostat setting is at maximum (34 degrees)). Is my heat mat too small?
