I have been having a hard time keeping the temps accurate in my leo's tank. I am not sure if I am checking the temps correctly. I have a probe thermometer that I use on the warm side of the tank. I keep an undertank heater on most of the time. If I put the probe inside the moist hide on the warm side of the tank and the temps can get up to 98-99 degrees. If I keep it just outside the moist hide the temps keep around 84-88 degrees. Is 98 degrees INSIDE the moist hide too hot? Or should I be more concerned about the temp of the air on the outside of the hide?
If I turn the Under Tank Heater off then the warm side of the tank cools down to 77 or so degrees.
I am hoping to get a 20 gallon tank in the next few weeks so I can create several hides throughout the thank.
