    The important thing is that he can get out of the heat when he needs to or his metabolism may go into overdrive and he won't be able to eat enough to gain weight. I might try putting the probe in a few other spots in his tank to make sure there's a hide that's around 75-80 degrees where he can go to cool off. These little guys really do best when they can press their belly onto a warm spot to digest which is why I usually recommend tank floors of ceramic tile, slate or some other surface that can conduct the heat from an UTH. Your setup looks amazing and he looks healthy but I'd double check the temps on the cool side of the tank just in case.

    I did before the remodel and the right side of the tank was in the low 80s\high 70s. Ironically at that point he stayed over on the colder side, but he didn't have much of a hide over on the hot side. He did have one, but it wasn't part of the main group of rocks. Not sure if it matter or not, but he has reptile carpet in the cooler hide, along with under the bridge.

    I'll move the probe around right now to see if the temps have changed at all.

    Looks like it's settling at 83.9*F with the daytime light on. That side has a light that turns off at night, so it'll get a bit cooler then.

    Edit: AI work nights, and checked the cold side hide's temperature when I got home from work and after the full night of cooling off it was at 74.3*F.
