    Default leopard gecko temp


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi I am a new leopard gecko owner. I am having some issues with keeping the tank warm. The UTH will read with my prob 93 but as soon as I start to cover that spot in the tank with dirt it will only read 82. I can not get that spot to heat up. this is his warm hide. but it is not very warm. the rest of the tank is between 74-77 degrees. what can I do do help heat up his warm hide??

    Hello surfingdad ~

    Some substrates like dirt and coco fiber are insulators. The deeper the substrate, the cooler the surface temp will be.

    Try placing just a thin layer of soil on top of your UTH. If you wish, add more soil elsewhere.
