Re: Regurg

Belly heat is provided by a UTH on a thermostat. I've also got a 40w CHE suspended above the enclosure on the warm side to raise the ambient temps because when the ambient was "room temperature" (74) he wasn't eating at all.

What I don't understand about the temps is how the thermostat probe on top of the substrate, over the UTH, could have registered 85 degrees while the IR heat gun pointed at the same spot could register 95 degrees. I just checked it again and the thermostat says it's 78 degrees while the temp gun says it's 88 degrees. The temp gun is correctly measuring other temps so it's the one I trust.

Do thermostat probes always measure so much lower than the actual temperature?
