    they would not be set at the same temp, my cool side would be set at 70, and my hot side is set at 91.
    they would be on opposite sides but this would keep the cool side at 70 and the warm side at 91-90, that way the whole tank is warm enough for her to climb-crawl.

    and if I use the extra heat mat to warm the enclosure, then i won't need a CHE, right?
    I'll be replying later today. I will send you a PM about my "missing" post from last night.

    I don't understand (in a room that's about 68*F all the time and using an 8 x 12 inch heat mat for a 30 x 12 x 12 inch -- 20 long) how half the entire ground can be between 90-91!

    As Sg612 and I have always mentioned, your warm end is too small! It's too small to make good use of a UVB/UVA bulb overhead! The cool end set at 70*F (no matter how) will not fix the 8 x 12 inch warm end. A 70*F cool end is NOT going to help Citrine's activity at all. Primarily it's belly heat from an 11 x 17 inch warm end that will help Citrine be more active.

    If you fix the warm end, then Zoo Med's 5.0 UVB/UVA compact fluorescent screw-in bulb needs to be above the warm end. Citrine may or may not "decide" to use that UVB. That way Citrine can get UVB as well as the warmth good belly heat provides.

    I asked where and how you've stuck the 8 x 12 inch heat pad you have and what the dimensions of your second heat mat are. I haven't heard back yet.

    Here's a link from Zoo Med that GU member DrGreatScott shared yesterday. I thought it might be helpful for you and Citrine.
