hey guys, with the sudden surge in temp head my cool side has climed to 25-26C. any ideas on how to cool the cooler end of the tank.

the warm end remains a nice constant but im worried hes not getting a good heat gradient to cool down sufficiently.

should be fine with a drop at night. if still unsure put a second water bowl in the cool end that might help

cooling the room's ambient temp by opening windows or using a fan can help

See, keep in mind, the temp in the cool side of the viv can't go below the room temperature. This should be obvious, I know, but I kinda panicked and made a few extra vents in my viv before realising that summer= warm >.>
....or maybe that's just me >.>

If you are worried about the snake over heating, pop in a piece of old kitchen tile. It should stay cool and your snake will lay on it if its too warm ^^
