    Default Room might be too cold, heating options?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Iím thinking of getting a crestie or a garg.. my temps are fine in the summer time my bedroom where I keep my leopard gecko, Renly, and beardie Zeus, is usually at 74-78. However in the winter it is at a constant 65-66 in the room. I think that might be too cold for them? If supplemental heating is needed, should I go with a heat pad, a heat lamp, or a 24 hour ceramic heat emitter?

    Mid- to upper 60's is OK for cresties or gargs at night, but I would use something to provide more heat during the day. Heat pads don't do much. A heat lamp or low-watt CHE in a wire fixture would probably work best.

    Perhaps this may help.

    The temperature did not drop much(from day and night)as seen in this video.
    81 during the day
    79.3 night

    I would give an option(area) of mild heating at night as well.
