Nighttime temp

Hey I am been looking around on these forums but have never posted until now. I just have a quick question about nighttime temperatures for my african fat tail gecko. I'm not sure if I should turn off my heat pad at night or not. My nighttime temperature is 75-77 degrees F. What temp should I never go below at night. I have been getting mixed answers from caresheets.

When I got my 2 babies from their breeder, he let their rack go down to about 80 at night, and 91-93 during the day. So far, with my heat pad on and a blue night time bulb, the ambient temp stays about 88 on the warm side at night, and only 81 on the cool side.

Yeah, the key with AFT's is to keep a temperature drop across the cage, from warm side to cool side, and you don't really have to worry about trying to maintain any certain differences at night. I keep all my AFT's around 90 on the warm side and 75-78 on the cool side, around the clock. And I know they're doing good because they all eat, grow and breed like crazy, lol.
