not sure where to put this question, mods feel free to move as need. i bought a small one to put on my gecko tank since i'm moving him into the bedroom where it is much cooler than the rest of the house (i have a heat lamp for him but i worry it won't be enough). i have two concerns. one: since he tends to spend most of his time on the walls of tank when he's active, and in his hide when he's not, where would be the best place to attach this heat mat? should i put itunder his hide or should i put it under the side where i keep a flat rock under the heat lamp for basking??? two: do these get hot enough that if he fell asleep on it or just stepped on the glass where its under, could he burn his little sticky toes or belly??? how hot do these things get???
