    Hi Elizabeth! My computer or my internet must be acting weird. When I leave the house and I turn the heat mat off or unplug it when should I plug it back in? When I come back home or in the morning? It got hot today so I unplugged it for a min and then plugged it back in so she didnít get cold. Thermostat shipped today!!!!

    For your leo in the 10 gallon enclosure:
    1. Turn the heat mat ON in the morning. Then watch the temps like a hawk! Don't let the temperature climb over 90*F.
    2. Be sure Nina has fresh water all the time.
    3. If you need to leave home for a while during the day, turn OFF the heat mat before you leave. I would not wish for you to return to find Nina no longer alive.
    4. Once your Hydrofarm Jump Start thermostat arrives on MAY 9th, set the maximum temp for 90*F. See how that goes. You may wish to set the maximum temp for 91*F instead.
    5. What are your plans for your leo when you return to work?
    6. Can you overnight ship your Hydrofarm Jump Start thermostat?

    I offered these instructions: "If you need to leave home for a while during the day, turn OFF the heat mat before you leave. I would not wish for you to return to find Nina no longer alive."

    /\ /\ Unplug the heat mat just while you're away from home and during the night. When your thermostat arrives, all you'll need is a timer to turn OFF the thermostat during the night. Places like Home Depot carry simple analog timers for about $6. Set ON and OFF times. Plug the thermostat into an adapter and then into the timer. Plug the timer into the wall.

    You will need an adapter between your 3-pronged thermostat plug and the 2-prong accessible timer.

    One never really knows exactly when they will return home. It is easy to be delayed for hours for many reasons. Earlier you reported a high of 106*F! Your leo has nowhere to escape unregulated heat like that.

    1. Are you connecting with GU by a cell phone?
    2. If so, does your cell phone allow you to scroll back to see earlier posts?

    Question Sleeping outside of hide

    Itís almost 8:00am where I live and my little Leo is sleeping on top of the hot hide. She has never done this before. I have read that that kinda of means they are getting use to their surroundings?

    I had another question sorry! So if she usually gets up at night around 7-7:30pm would that be the best time to set it to go off and then set it to come back on at 7am?

    I've moved your "Sleeping outside of hide" thread into this one, since it's about the same gecko, and most likely related to the current discussion.
