I am keeping my bearded viv at the correct temp. I have a 100watt ceramic emmiter for heating.
the temp under the basking rock is 96f 34c the cool side is 79f . The heating is controlled by a themomstat. I leave the heating on the time as my room get really cold at night about 12 c the room temp is at night. Do I turn my thermostat up or leave it. It only goes up to 36c
any advice please

If you haven't already read this post as it helps with positioning and using thermostats viewtopic.php?f=8&t=397 . Temps at the basking spot should be 39~42 C with a cool side of mid 20's. Overnight the temps must be allowed to drop to allow for a good night's sleep, it's safe to let them drop to around 16C and the occasional 10C won't hurt either. Do you use a ceramic heater or a spotlight. Dragons prefer basking under a bright white light and so Phillips RO 80 75 watt spots seem the best heat source (and cheapest).
