Default 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?

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.

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

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.
