I would lose the heat lamp, rosys do NOT need UVA/UVB light and the absorb their heat through their bellies.I would stick with just the undertank heating pad and if you can use a thermostat that the undertank heater plugs into so you can limit the heat/hot spot to 92 degrees and let the cool side be the 80 degree.You can use the heat lamp/light lamp just for looks/viewing of the rosys but not for heat. Rosys in the wild hardly are seen out basking in the the sun.When they are found during daytime in spring they are under rocks or are moving between rockpiles.The rest of the year mainly out in the evenings or night again without sunlight for heat.I try to keep my captives the same as they would be in the wild.Even during the time of year where they are brumating and how they are brumating I try to keep it the same as they would be in the wild.This has helped out with breeding this year with 10 or o localities succesfully being bred and gravid now.
