I don't let mine go lower than 20 oC at night but they are Pilbera local . they range from alice springs to darwin north south, So i am guessing the ones from alice can take a fairly cold night. The ones from darwin and NW/Wa would rarely see less than 20 oC so to play it safe i keep mine warm at night and yours being a baby i would keep it warm, others will tell you it does not matter.
They should be fine with no heat at all during the night, depending where you live.
I am in QLD and I use no additional heat during the night.
If you are from the southern states I suggest you add a heat mat or some form of mild heat for "peace of mind".
As others have said, depending where you are night time heating usually isn't necessary. I don't provide any additional heating at night, but the ambient room temperature is usually 17°C overnight in winter (after a few exceptionally cold nights recently it got down to 15°C). If it was to get any lower than that I'd be doing as Mulgaaustralis suggested.No great genius has ever existed without some touch of madness
It gets cold her near canberra so i'm keeping him at about 24c at night.I might wait until the weather warms up and he starts to eat properly and puts on some weight before i turn of the heat at night.
