Would it be better to keep my BCC at a constant temp day and night or have a drop at night?

I have read that they can 'tolerate' a drop of temp at night but not if this is the best option for them.

Thanks.

mine used to have a night time drop, up until about 2 weeks ago when the weather turned cold and it got too cold at night, so now i just leave it constant.

All the info I have found on this purely says maintain between 82-90 degrees, hot spot of 95 and BCC can tolerate a night drop to 80 degrees.

i would leave it on constantly, there is no need to drop the temp exept for breeding

as long as yoiu have a warm end of about 88F ish 29-32c then you should be alrite, I drop my temp about 2C at night but not so much in winter, as long as your cool end is above 75-76F then you should be alrite. They still have the warm end to go to if they are cold
