Are you saying that its inappropriate for this species to push the hot spot up a few degrees with a suspected RI? I have my Herpstats set to 87.5 for the hotspot normally, but if I suspect an RI, I'd push the hotspot temperature up a few degrees. This is what I've done for other species I keep, is it incorrect for this species?

My chondros have a gradient of roughly 80-88 and tend to hang at 84-85, but I want them to have the option to move to a cooler or warmer spot if they need to. I've seen experienced chondro breeders keep their hotspot temps at 89 with the logic that they're getting fewer RIs that way. My snakes seem happy with the gradient I've given them so I've left it as it is, but I'll absolutely follow their lead if I start seeing RI symptoms.
