Also make sure you are measuring your temperatures with either a DIGITAL PROBE, or a TEMP GUN.
The dial ones can be off about 10-15 degrees. Also, when measuring the BASKING spot, make sure the probe or gun is ON the spot. For example, if you have a log in the middle of the hot side, make sure the probe/gun is ON the log. If it's in the air or the corner, it only measures the "air", not the heat beam under the bulb.
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?
