Of course then you will have to find ways to prevent the tank from getting too dry.

    You can try placing 2 pieces of folded paper towel in that same spot for easy cleaning. They usually return to the same spot unless she decides she doesn’t like the paper towel
    During the day she stays inside her cool hide on the right and doesn't come it till like 6 at night. Then most of night she just stays inside the hot hide. So I'm hoping the bigger heat mat will make her more active. I just checked again and now with the lid on the cool side temp is 72. When I checked early the lid was off. I didn't think the screen lid held in much heat but I do see the temp drop both on the hot side and cool side when I have it open and doing stuff.

    In the more secure hide, makes sense. I think Elizabeth already mentioned about buying a more secure hide for the warm side? That should fix that problem. Sometimes you will need to buy the exact hide for the other side.

    There’s a possibility that the ground is too hot for her liking, however I wouldn’t lower the temp without trying more secure hides first. The last thing you want is an under heated gecko.

    Sweet tonight I went to feed her and was actually able to see her eat. I dusted them today with calcium no D3 and will do reptivite plus D3 on Wednesday then just calcium no D3 Friday again. It was nice to see her eat and even got the wife and kids to see it. Wife is so much better with pictures then me and she was able to get few cool pics of her striking and eating.

    Hmm which one to strike


    The strike


    Love this shot looks like she is smoking s cigar



    And taking it down

    Have you received your Ultratherm heat mat from the Bean Farm?

    Little tape rolls of Nashua tape all over with strips of tape along the edges will hold it firmly in place.

    No it's on a 2 week back order so I just ordered the ipower 8x12 16watt heat mat from Amazon. So that should be here Friday.

    WOW, even at the Bean Farm! That's good to know. I knew Amazon was sold out. The 11 x 17 Ultratherms are 22 watts.

    Please let us know how the ipower 8 x 12 16 watt heat mat works for Queen Lydia.

    Yeah I will. When I was looking up best under tank heat mats ipower was in top 5. Usually 2nd after the ultratherm and before the exo Terra heat mats. And plus I have the ipower thermostat that is highly rated on Amazon too. And figured the 8x12 is a good compromise in size. It says it's rated for a 40 gallon
