Should I use a heat pad?

So my dad bought me a heat pad-one that comes with a Thermostat, for Mr. Dragon, but I'm not sure if I should use it? I would never even consider using it during the day, even in winter its too freaking hot where I live and even hotter in my room. But it can get pretty cold during the night, so I want to be able to keep him warm at night but is it okay to use a heat pad? Is it best to put it underneath the tank or on the side of the tank? The coldest it gets at night here is like 65/70 F so should I even use it at all??

you don't need heat at night at all unless it gets below 65° or your dragon is sick

If you decide to use it,stick it on the back of the tank and all the way to one end (assuming your habitat is glass) beardies are not good with heat from the bottom.

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
