    Hey guys is there a night time temp that my viv should not get below? With the current cool weather we are doing the window thing and I wanted to keep them safe.

    a 10 degree drop at night is fine......you do not want the overall temps to drop below 60F....especially during breeding seasons for various species.

    Oh that is fine then, I have been keeping them around 70-73 just in case. I don't think out night temps even drop that low right now. 60 seems really low though.

    i lost power for 3 days at near frezing temps in winter only heat is electric , the frogs were fine.althought id never recomend it i dont think a drop will be a problem unless its very sudden. i aim for 18 c as a min but like to stay at 20 when im in control.
