    You have a great amount of space to provide ideal conditions. In my experience leopard geckos have their individual preferences in regards to temps. They will not all thrive under the same temp. Instead of doing this:

    yes, theese are the maximum temperatures. I installed a dimmer yesterday and will try to get it down by a few degrees.
    Leaving the heat mat on all the time (with no thermostat) causes these super high maximum temps. Maximum temp should be no warmer than @ 33.3*C.


    Consider providing micro climates. For example: one heat mat connected to a thermostat at 95f. Another heat mat next to it on another thermostat 88f. Just make sure they have enough of a cool area. This will give your Leos options to choose the temp that they want.

    Hi

    @Hilde it's okay for me, I do not mind answering questions.

    @Elisabeth, the heatmat is connected to a timer, it s not heating 24 h but only 10 hours. I know of the benefits of a thermostat but never used any - neither for incubation nor in a tank. The last 15 years I fared quite well, it's more work sure - but absolutetly manageable.

    @Sg612, yes that's the product. I use the complete T much less than the Calcium one. I am well aware of the risk of an overdose - but never had any issues with my other reptiles so far. If I had any problems in the past it was a underdose resulting in several hatchling suffering rachitis or else. I never had any negative effect with overdose, so I am not to careful with that....
    Most my animals are also feed a good share of woodlice which I do not supplement at all, as they inherently have calcium in them.

    regards,
