>>Thanks! I will get a light on him, but I assume the upper 80s to 90 degree temps is daytime? What is the best way to accomplish the high end temps? I can either go with UTHs or lights or both.

>>The setup he came with is a ten gal with an under tank heater. He rarely had an overhead heat source. He is on bark that I will toss ASAP because it smells like urine. He has been fed only crix, and I understand that they need some veg/fruit matter?

>>So, what is the best substrate? Do they need any UV? What are the best day AND night temp gradients?
>>
>>I will likely put him up for adoption as soon as I make sure he is healthy and is eating a proper diet. But I need to set him up properly to do that. Thanks so much for any advice!

My brother has a light on his tank, and that seems to work ok for him. As for substrate, I'm not 100% on what's optimal. My brother uses some moss I believe, and of course paper towels are always going to be safe, so I'd probably go with those at least to start. I'll send him an email and see if I can either get some more detail from him on what's good for them or just get him to post here. Like I said, I just know what I've observed when I've been over to his place; I've never really had a detailed conversation with him on their requirements.
