[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

While i understand the care of a gargoyle gecko, I don't completely understand that of a Leo. I know everything about the leopard gecko except for how long one is supposed to have the heat mat on each day. I've heard 24/7. Is that true? Would the UTH be left on for 24 hours or something along the lines of 12 hours?

HEat mats are best for supplemental heat rather than the only heat source. As long as it is on a thermostat 24hr is ok.

Would it have to be on for 24 hours or would it only need to be on for like 12 hours a day like bearded dragons with their lamp cycle? Also, I though under tank heaters hooked up to thermostats were the best. I reckon bright bulbs and colored bulbs aren't the best so that would only leave a CHE.
