Temperature Question
If my hedgies cage is already 75degrees should I just not turn on the light or should I just let the themostat handle that?

Re: Temperature Question
Do you mean the light or the CHE?

They still need to have 12-14 hours of direct light per day no matter the temperature. If you mean the CHE and its controlled by a thermostat then yes you should have it turned on and let the thermostat control it.

Re: Temperature Question
I meant CHE, thanks! So the thermometer is just to insure that it doesn't overheat?

Re: Temperature Question
The thermometer just tells you what temperature it is in the cage. You need to have the CHE plugged into a Thermostat to control the temp.
