Proper Placement of Digital Thermometer

Postby Shaun78 » Wed Jul 08, 2020 4:04 am

Good Morning Gang:
So I upgraded to all digital thermometers and was just curious about the placement of the probes. So I have the heat lamps at the front of the enclosure and the UVB at the back. So should the probes be at the front of the enclosure nearer to the heat lamp or at the back of the enclosure away from the heat lamp. I have two but the second of is the cooler side of the tank so I really don't think probe placement matters all that much. But the basking side is where I question it. Also bought a digital humidity stat as well. I kept the dial thermometers attached to the back of the tank because why not have backups right.

You will place the probe wherever you want the read a measurement from. They dont have to stay committed to a single space either.

For the basking site, take the measurement from a few locations. And take note of the temperature where your dragon typically basks.
