Thanks for the comments! LOL, Seems everything else going on is more important, I'll stand clear of the typical crap that goes in here. The enclosure is 15' X 6' X 6' (I wish I would of gone 8' wide but you live and learn!) The basking platform has 4 - 50w indoor/outdoor halogens and the baking site is approx 120-125 degrees. I also have 2 - 50w halogens on one side of the nest box and a single 50w halogen pointing towards the water. My ambient temp is currently 80. I'm adding 2 - 125w heat bulbs with the possibility of a 3rd for winter (Not much of a winter in South Florida) to bring the temp up to around 85 ambient. It has been chilly here and the substrate was wet (it had rained) when I put it in. Humidity is up around 100% (or more lol). Once conditions stabilize I'll have a better idea of what I need to do. I'm sure once the weather turns back around I'll be turning off a few of the installed lights to keep temps down. I don't have a surface temp at this time. There are different layers of substrate. I'm sure the decomposing leaves on the bottom where the animals main burrow is (under the stump) is warmer then the sand and top soil. Just working on dialing everything in at this time. I am also planning on putting an aquarium heater in the 4'w X 6'L X 24" depth pond. Hope this covers all of your questions. Anything else let me know. I don't know it all and I'm sure many of you have been keeping monitors a hell of a lot longer then I. Reptiles aren't rocket science and as long as you can provide the conditions the animals require you will likely be successful. The day I hatch these guys my ultimate goal will have been surpassed!
