I wouldn't make any drastic changes now, unless you would feel better dropping one degree
I didn't check more then one spot. I will now. You slip it through the vent hole on top, right? I calibrated my other thermometer and it was dead on, so I stuck it in there and it's reading 100.5 and the spot check is now reading 102.5! 2 degrees high. The brinsea is reading 1 degree low. I should trust the calibrated one, right? I checked it in a proper ice bath, and it sat right at 32 degrees.

Ross, I'm so sorry. That is super frustrating and upsetting, especially because I know they are an investment. But Pyxis is good
(She helped me tremendously with a sick reptile)...I know she'll help you out!

And being a little high is ok... I run mine closer to 101 anyways and have better results...
thank you. Yeah, it seems to be running 2 degrees high. I'm going to move it around and see...
