    Good question. I'll see whether I can find out.

    For my beardie i have the 80w its plugged into direct power and keeps the basking spot at a perfect temp however thatd be way too hot for a leo so i can see a thermostat being needed.. Id def go with a proportional unit if that was the case.

    My order should arrive tomorrow. Do you have any experience with the herpstat Ez1? That’s the thermostat I’m using.

    I use the herpstat EZ1 for my geckos' heat mat - it is fairly simple but since the programming is non-digital I keep a copy of the link handy. For any heat source use "dimming" this is the proportional setting. I use a regular lamp timer for his UVB https://www.target.com/p/ge-indoor-m...t/-/A-14440330

    I made a key to hang next to the thermostat since the way you know if it working / too hot / too cold etc is the color of the LED snake eyes on the display. You want them to both be green.

    I tried it for the first time today. It really keeps a constant temperature compared to a ceramic heat emitter on an on/off thermostat.

    I have been using the DHP with a Herpstat EZ1 for the last 4 months. It has been working well for me so far.

    I've noticed that Mae has lost her appetite more often on the frequent feeding schedule for a while now. She's going off food for much longer than before. Is there anyway I could make her feeding less frequent?

    How often is Mae eating now? Eating less frequently is a normal part of maturing.

    As long as she eats 3x per week, she'll be getting those important supplements until ~ February 2.:
    • Monday ~ Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3
    • Wednesday ~ Zoo Med'd Repti Calcium without D3 (plain)
    • Friday ~ Zoo Med's Reptivite without D3

    Ever since I started the juvenile supplement schedule she would miss out on one or two feedings a week. She is 6-7 years old now isn’t she already mature at this point? Before I followed the advise from this forum I used to feed Mae every other day and I learned that she is not hard to fill, 4-5 insects tends to make her not want to eat a meal that’s only a day after. Dubai roaches do seem to increase her chance to deny eating. I tried Phoenix worms Saturday and she wouldn’t eat anymore than 3.
