flukers thermometer flat
The Thermometer Flat is an easy, accurate way to find out the temperature of your terrarium or aquarium. This handy device attaches to the exterior wall of your tank and offers readings in both, Fahrenheit and Celsius. Reptiles and amphibians are dependent on environmental temperature to regulate their body temperature and maintain proper health. Fluker's Digital Thermometer helps you establish as appropriate Environmental Temperature Range (ETR) within your pet's enclosure to help ensure your pet's safety, comfort and longevity. In addition, adhering Fluker's Digital Thermometer to the outside glass of aquatic systems (below the water level) allows aquarium owners to monitor the water temperature for aquatic pets.
Most amphibians can be maintained in an ETR of 70-76 F. They do not tolerate temperatures above 82 F. They should experience a night-time temperature drop of 5-10 F.
An appropriate ETR for desert reptiles is typically 85-95 F, temperate species 75-90 F and tropical species 80-90 F. Free movement between the warm and cool sides of their enclosures is essential. Reptiles should experience a night-time drop of 5-10 F.
