Hi all! I need a little clarification if you don’t mind I’m new to BP’s, I have my girl in a 4x2x2 Repti-Life enclosure which she absolutely loves, with a CHE on the hot side hooked up to a HabiStat pulse proportional stat keeping the hot side at between 32-34c during the day with a nice gradient down to the cool side (I also monitor temps with a heat gun). I was told by a more experienced keeper friend before I got my BP to turn the temp down at night by up to 10 degrees so I have been and have had no problems. However, after speaking to another keeper who’s been in the hobby for 15+ years I was told NOT to turn temps down at night as that’s why the cool side is there to begin with, and that the fact I’m using a CHE instead of a heat mat defeats any chance of my BP getting burnt anyway (unless she was to somehow get inside the guard, which she couldn’t).
I would like to hear your thoughts on this
