I've seen your viv, very nice. For now Petey is in a 40br so have to work with what we have. After several adjustments, he was steady at 97.9F an hour before lights out. Checking and adjusting his lights when needed, is the norm for me. Lately the warmer temps have caused me to have to adjust his light or it'll be too hot. Sometimes, I just have to fold his towel back on his lid to keep it under control. Will definitely look into a thermostat and dimmer. Today I have to pull his timer and reset it, guessing I messed up the setting when I dropped it yesterday working on his light. Had to turn off and on by hand last night and this morning. Always something.?
