    All that was measured was the corner of her tank above the last piece of the cable (the thicker part). The probe sits right in between the glass wall and her warm hide. She was on the cool side of the tank when I woke up.

    I'm at work now. I may be able to take the photo in about 5-6 hours if my coworker doesn't flake.. It may even be up to 8 hours. I have my husband home to monitor her temps in the mean time so it doesn't drop below 70 in her tank, though the cable will remain off. Also the cable is the 39' cable you suggested to me.
    Place the thermostat's probe right on top of the substrate underneath the warm dry hide. That's the basis of my temp recommendations.

    If temps aren't ~88-92, your leo won't be able to digest her food.

    The temps easily hit 121 under her warm hide (she was on the cool side anyways). In the mean time, we are keeping temps in the house high while I wait for my next paycheck. She eats fine and poops fine still.

    No, she's fine. I made sure she was in her cool hide. Unless you mean having to keep the temps in our apartment high. Still, though, I need to get so much for her its a little overwhelming.

    I know it's overwhelming. :/

    Once you have the basics (and you're almost there), it's basically just food, supplements, and occasional vet care.

    Having almost all the basics is the bright side ! C:

    Update: Getting a better moist hide and thermometer to control the heating cable tomorrow. Will most likely arrive Thursday or Friday. Then Fii will have proper heat and a better hide. All that's left is getting the right supplements and dubia roaches. Grubs are going to be here by next Tuesday (just mealworms/crickets/waxworms until then)

    Thermostat, not thermometer?

    I'd skip waxworms.

    Yes, I meant thermostat. One of these suggestions works for a heat cable, too?

    Also... I gave her a bath this morning for two reasons; To see if the possible mites might float up, and because she only "pooped" urates.

    I looked at her tummy and saw 2 small blue lines, and I'm positive it's the mealworms since I haven't yet gotten the proper heat yet and she's only on paper towels. I've been feeding her mostly mealworms, waxworms, and some crickets. I will purchase the thermostat on amazon today and it'll arrive tomorrow or Friday, but still... I'm worried for Fii and kicking myself for not getting it last week and feeding her only what I could get.

    Other than soaking her in water, is it ok to use a little vegetable oil as a "laxative"? And I should wait to feed her until she poops? Anything else I should do?

    Her new diet plan arrives by wednesday, so mealworms will not be something she has very often.
