Hello, I've had two female leopard geckos for almost 6 months now. A mother & daughter; Instagram

And our viv looks a bit like this; Instagram

I'm on here looking for some advice on heat lamps as I don't think my heat mat alone is sufficient.

What is the temperature of the tank in the hot side vs cool side? Do you have a thermometer to control the heat pad temperature? If you absolutely need a extra heat source, you could get a black heat lamp. No white or red lamps, they can harm the Leo's eyes, and stress them out. The lamp shouldn't have to be too powerful if you already have a heat mat

Hello I started a thread here; Need a suitable heat lamp for my viv

There's no control over the heat pad. We have a hide sat directly over the area where the heat pad is, inside of which they have dug down closer to it. So I think I'll try to get a temperature reading in there to try to get an idea of the temperature at ground level.
