    Do you mean "thermostat set to 90"?

    What is the reading on top of the substrate underneath the warm dry hide right now?

    Have you considered adding a second Zoo Med 50-60 gallon size (8 x 18 inches) or an Ultratherm (11 x 17 inches)? Inkbird sells a thermostat with outlets for 2 heat mats.

    The thermostat is set to 80 since we didn’t want it going on forever. But it does that anyways since it never reaches 80. Again, only in the summer.
    With this new big tank, the ready is around 70
    I have considered it but not sure if I should go through

    And we have the heat mat situated long ways so it covers almost half of the tank

    IF the thermostat is set for 80*F but only reaches 70ish in the warm dry hide, then the heat mat may be defective OR it may be colder than 67*F in that room.

    What brand thermostat do you have?

    Thermostats are meant to be set near the desired temperature: 88-92*F.

    All leos need a warm dry hide during the day that's 88-92*F in order to remain healthy.

    Heat mats only work where they are situated, not much further at all. Heat mats barely heat the air directly above the heat mat.

    The room gets colder than 68 degrees since she’s in the basement. But again it’s not a full badement since it’s not underground, but it’s till gets cold.

    Please relocate your leo's 40 gallon breeder enclosure to a much warmer location. Even then please troubleshoot whether your current heat mat is defective.

    IF temps continue as you've described, Calypso will not thrive. She will be susceptible to upper respiratory illnesses like pneumonia or digestive problems from eating (or not eating) with super low temps.
