    A circle thermometer is not adequate for your needs.

    Once I know the temp of the room where your leo's cage is, I can recommend a size for your new heat mat.

    If you also use an overhead bulb you'll need a dimmer/rheostat or a second thermostat.

    There are several things you really need:
    1. digital thermometer with a probe
    2. Hydrofarm's Jump Start thermostat to control your heat mat -- $20 off Amazon
    3. Larger heat mat
    4. If you need to order some things, what are you using for powdered supplements right now?

    65 around the clock, 24/7? If so I'd order Zoo Med's 8 x 12 inch heat pad.

    What brand of D3 calcium? How often are you using it?

    Please reduce Rep Cal calcium with D3 to only 1 feeding per week. D3 is a fat soluble vitamin. Once per week is plenty! (Rep Cal calcium contains a huge amount of D3. I'd switch to the Zoo Med brand for calcium, D3, and multivitamins.)

    Are you feeding him other insects?

    Please get back with me about all these things. Right now your leo is not prepared for winter. If you add overhead heat, you'll need a ceramic heat emitter so as not to disturb your leo at night. The ceramic heat emitter MUST be on a rheostat/dimmer! There is no wiggle room in a 10 gallon!

    Are all the areas near your home pesticide-free? If you don't know, please don't feed your leo crickets from your garden. Pesticides can make your leo sick or possibly kill him.

    Do you understand how important the heating issues are that we spoke about yesterday? If the warm end ground temperature is less than 88-92*F, your leo will be unable to digest anything you feed him. Ultimately he will lose weight and die.

    I know you care about your leopard gecko. How do you plan to help him?
