How to get a tank to the right temps

Postby CheshireVendetta » Thu Nov 08, 2018 7:34 am

So we just had to fork out the money on another 120 gallon tank cause our landlords contractors cracked the glass on ours however we do need help getting the right temperatures with this new one as we are using a 150 watt basking bulb and a heat Matt but can't seem to get the temps over 80f any advice would be appreciated
