I have a thermometer in there right now and right now it's at 70 f. When the power went out it was at a house we don't even live in anymore and the house we live in now hasn't experience a power outage.

So far on our shopping list is an under tank heater and some moss (which we all have coupons for yay!)

This is the kit I bought my leopard gecko btw. I know generally getting kits isn't the best thing, but I know I needed a 10 gallon tank and it seemed to be really good deal.

You'll want to try and get the hot side to around 85 degrees and the under tank heater should help a lot. You can try a bulb with a higher wattage as well (70+). The cool side of the tank doesn't need to me as hot but each side should have a separate hide if possible.

I just found out I'm suppose to use both of the heat lamps my kit came with. Now his hot side is at 80 and the colder side is 70-73

This is what I get for not reading the directions

He's up and moving and licking his calcium dust like a weirdo. He actually ended up eating one mealworm c:

That's much better! Closer to 90 is preferable, but that's not bad and the fact that he's already eating is wonderful!

I'm not sure if the thermometer is completely accurate I'm not sure.
I also made a make shift moist hide with some damp paper towel.
