Hi everyone, I have a 8 month old super zeb arriving on Saturday and im trying to get everything right before his arrival. Using a 7W reptile one heat matt and a microclimate evo lite thermostat on a 21L tub from the reject shop. No matter what i try the thermostat wont read over 25deg but the temp gun says 31deg. I have the probe placed right on the hot spot. What reading is the one i go off? Its beginning to really stress me out. Perhaps the tub is the wrong plastic? I need to have this sorted before my animal arrives --- Automatic Post Merged, Aug 8, 2019, Original Post Date: Aug 8, 2019 --- Trying to post pictures but they are to large. I do have little feet under the tub for air flow. Maybe the mat needs direct contact?
