    Default Pacman frog heating

    Hello! I need some help with my pacman frogs heating situation. Right now I am using a 40w ceramic heat emitter in a regular dome, but it only gets his tank to about 75 in the daytime and maybe 72 at night. I donít think that sufficient, so iím looking into what else I can do. I would like to get a thermostat, but with that would you change the temp manually for night time temps? Idk if that would work for me since I have him running on natural light from my window (no direct sun) but I leave for work in the morning before the sun comes up so iíd be unable to change it from nighttime to daytime temps. I donít know if iím overthinking this or what??? Who knows but I do know I need higher temps with a drop at night and idk how to achieve that. Any recommendations are highly appreciated.

    Spyder robotics and vivarium electronics both make thermostats with night drop accessories. They aren’t exactly cheap but they work exceptionally well.

    I have a 75 w ceramic heater for the day, and 60 w ceramic heater for night. It keeps the temps at about 84 during the day and 78 at night time. I bought a timer from Petco, it's either Zoomed or Exoterra that I set to switch the heaters every 12 hours. So at 7 am it switches to daytime heater, and 7 pm it switches to night heater. It cost like 20 bucks I think. I also bought a two dome light fixture from Petco that I think was bout $30-40 so one side has the 60 w and the other has the 75 w. I had a REALLY hard time getting the temps up in my tank as well and had to go up from the 60 w to 75 w in order to get it over 80 degrees during the day.
