Got my AP Cage!!!

Hi,
Just got my new cage. So excited! My snake seems to be happy with his current setup. He sheds completely, eats and handles well, uses his humid hide as well as the other furniture. So the snake is good. Now for the new enclosure. Right now I just have a heat bulb keeping him warm. Now I have Pro Products heat panel. Iíll be connecting it to an Inkbird 308T thermostat . My question is do I keep the hot side at the same temp for both day and night? Iím thinking Iíll start off at 88F. Or should I allow it to drop down at night? As it is now the bulb stays on for 12 hrs and then off at night.
Thanks!

Hi there! Congrats on the new cage. I wish I had advice, but I don't.

I'd only worry about a night drop if your thermostat can do it automatically. Just give the snake a good hide on both sides and let it go where it wants to at night.
