I use a digital max/min thermometer, not sure of the manufacturers name. They are about 15.00 and you can get them online. I will try and find a link for them tonight and post it on this thread.

I Like them because they monitor the temp at both ends of the set up.

Hi GC

If your getting the bulb mentioned in this thread you do not need the UV strip light. The TREX bulb produces both UV and heat. Depending on the setup and the background temp in your house you may have to add some additional heat by way of a normal spot lamp. Good to hear though that you getting prepared well in advance. It gives you the chance to try it all out before the tortoise arrives. Once your set up check your temperatures and see what they are like. If your not getting the right temp give us a shout and we can talk you through your options for additional heat.
