    Question Temperature Help!!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I'm a new leopard gecko owner, just got the cute little guy a couple days ago.
    I spoiled him too much when I went shopping for his new home but the only thing I'm worried about is his temperate in his habitat. The store I went to hooked me up with a UTH and a heat lamp with an attached UVB light. The way I was told to set it up was the heat pad and the lamp on opposite sides but I feel like it keeps the whole tank too hot. I have a wall thermometer that's right under the light/hot spot reading at about 98 degrees. Then I have a probe thermometer in the sand on the opposite side over the pad and its reading at a 91 without the heat lamp and about 95 with the lamp on. During the night, without the heat lamp the hot spot side cools down to about 78 degrees. I'm just worried my little guy won't have any cool spots. Is the heat lamp and pad supposed to go on the same side? or should I take away the lamp? I want to make my baby as happy as possible
