This is a temperature probe that I have used and use for nightime ,

also alternatively could she use a Digital Laser Temperature Gun to check temperature , I got this one on amazon,
I use a dimmer switch on a halogen bulb for the heat source, and if it helps, I created this video for my pet sitter to show him how to check temperature using the gun.
If any of this is not accurate @KarrieRee please correct me

He has a thermometer in each side. Temp is a little low. 92
the UVB bulb is like 5-6 months old.

To get the temp up a little for now you can put tin foil on top of the tank however you probably need to change the bulb. Youu need a 100W or a 150W bulb. I use the flukers basking bulb, that is on Amazon. But there are more options. I will put some links below. Exo Terra Sun-Glo Daylight Halogen Lamp, 150-Watt https://a.co/d/bTPu2zr, Fluker's Basking Spotlight Bulbs for Reptiles https://a.co/d/bc73ktB, Zoo Med Reptile Basking Spot Lamps 150 Watts (4 Pack) Amazon.com. These all have 100W options on Amazon I believe.

The primary thing needing to be changed would be your lighting for the UVB. That is most likely
what is causing that type of behaviour & jerky movement. He isn't able to process his calcium or
other vitamins/minerals. It looks neurological.
Are you using the digital probe thermometer to measure the temperatures during the day?
This happened suddenly?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank

Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
