The only part of the tank during the day should be 80's cool side - the other temps in the tank should be warmer -- you can place another dome in the middle of the tank w/ a lower wattage like even a regular house hold bulb of 60 watt might get the temps up to what you want -- or you can get a basking bulb of 50-75 wattage - you dont want temps of 80 at night too warm UNLESS hes sick then thats when you want those warmer temps --
Do these temps look better than before? All I did was have the emitter in the general area but not too close in

Those temps are ambient and the 88 is on the cool side? And I take it the 92 is middle of tank? You need a digital probe thermometer for actual basking surface temps

Poop looks good -- the probe place it where he sits for basking it will give you his actual basking temp-- is he sitting on that platform by the probe? Or is it the rock hes sitting on? You want your surface basking temps 105-110 for him -

It’s next to the rock but Ive put the probe on the rock she basks on a few times to see the temp and it peaks at like 108 stays around 104 though… Another thing tho today I seen it the most she keeps closing her eyes while laying on the rock

Ok it looks like shes got some shed coming on -- they often will close their eyes while basking -- if they swell up that is normal too or if the do a eye bulging that too is caused by shed -- if they are watering or get some sort of mucous that is not normal -- then we need to look at the basking light your using- you want a clear solid bright white bulb -- no daytime bulbs please

Yeah the light I’m using is just a basking spot light and I got a other 60 watt bulb in the middle like you recommended I just got it set up, so is it also normal for her to not wanna eat as much when shedding, just got the basking temp and it went up to 111

Ok watch her for the temps- and yes they can slow on the eating when shedding -- it makes them crabby--

Also forgot to ask should I like give her water or anything to help her shed
She needs to stay hydrated but not for shedding- drop water on her nose see if she will lick it -- if she does keep dropping till she quits - when her eye becomes dry and crackly and its hanging off you can mist her take a soft baby toothbrush and gently brush her eye - that will get the stuff thats hanging off --
