    Hi all.

    I am.after some advice on placement. At present I have an 18 x 18 x 24 enclosure.
    Currently, there is a heat mat adhered to the underside, critters comfort substrate over glass and hides. There temperature really only shows any warmth on the nearby vicinity to this heat source. Mat is hooked to a dimming thermostat. I also placed a sheet of plasterboard with pre drilled holes over the top as it was full mesh. How and where could I incorporate and overhead heat lamp to help with thermal gradient and should that existing lamp be hooked to the same thermostat as the heat mat, a separate one or on timer and where would i place probe. Currently it is resting on substrate near hide

    I forgot to mention in my wisdom... its for a Darwin Carpet, roughly 9mth old
