Hi all,

I picked up my first Crestie this morning, and have a couple of questions about the min and max temperatures.

When I left this morning, min was 19.9 and max was 25. Current was 24.

Now I am back a few hours later, (and re-set temps before going out), my min has crept up to 24 with the max at 26. Is this enough of a difference, or would my new Crestie prefer a cooler place to escape to?

I have a heat mat underneath, and so I have turned it off for now and will be keeping a close eye on the temps.

Where should the temperature probe be positioned ideally? It's quite warm under the lights, so presumably half way down the wall? The real min near the bottom may be a bit lower.
