    Default New Setup for Leopard Gecko

    I just purchased a Zoo Med 10 gal tank kit, log hide, rock hide, carpet and a heat pad.

    I placed the rock hide on the heat pad side, and the log on the cool side with the food/water dishes.

    The room that the tank is in is consistantly 73F

    The thermometer in the rock hide reads 86F

    Do I still need to use the top lights?

    Leopard geckos can actually be harmed by top lights, you should only use the heat pad, but do you have a thermometer to control the temperature the heat pad heats to?
