If you go for around 82 degrees, you shouldn't be far wrong - but knowing what species it is will help folks suggest what's correct for your species (and particularly if you want to incubate for a specific sex!)

we are going to go for 85 to get a spread. (this is what my fiance has been told) is this true or not?

Also my brother seems to think higher than 85 makes them violent is this also true?

Higher than 85 makes mostly males. For a spread I'd personally go a little lower - 83 to 84 (but then I prefer getting more females than males; they're easier to rehome.)

Higher than 89 is likely to make masculinised females, which are more aggressive than normal females (and many males) - in my experience males will also treat a hot female AS a male and attack her rather than mating her.

its sams fiance here , NXSmiggy. This was TOTALLY unexpected as ive just rehomed her brother reptile collection.

Looks like its a SHCT x Normal from the info ive been given. the Eggs are still warm as there in the tank with the parents and im waiting for the hovabator to heat up

How long do these things take to hit temps?

should be an interesting month lol
