Default Single 10” dome 100W CHE enough?

I realize this may be a dumb question but I just realized the second CHE set up I ordered hasn’t shipped yet.
My future hedgehog’s cage is a Midwest Guinea Pig habitat with the top. I was wondering, since I’m planning to have the back and two sides lined with a fleece blanket anyway....would one CHE set up be enough? If not, the second one will be on the way shortly I’m just worried about until then. It’s been getting pretty cold in the early mornings here 65F otherwise it’s been in the high 70s most of the day.

You could keep your heating up a bit higher. Possible add more heat absorbing things into the cage too might help if your worried.

I believe with that cage most peope recomend getting two che, but I may be wrong.

I have two lamps for my Midwest, and it does regulate the temp better, but if it’s already on the way, the one will be fine for the couple days you’re waiting for the second. Just keep extra fleece in her house until then!

If you have trouble getting the temp up enough till the other unit comes try covering some of the top with tin foil to keep more heat in.

Well turns out my cage shipping has gotten delayed so the second heating set will be here before the cage 😂. So now I’m going to have to stop by Walmart and get a sterilite bin to keep hedgie in for the couple of days until the cage gets here.
