I have a very similar version, https://reptilekages.com/ same size, and I am happy with it so far. The only thing that I did was replace the plexiglass windows with regular glass, the plexiglass gets scratched up quite easily.
Thank you Chris, your help and assistance has been so invaluable, I've honestly been so impressed with your help and assistance and help throughout this process. Family is throughly enjoying the torts, their soaking and feeding is part of our daily routine as a family.
I did not even think about a necropsy, that is a good point. We buried it in the back yard but I can get to it. Assuming vets do that?
I have them in a 48x24 encloure, temps go down to 70 at night, high 80's during the day, with mid 90's for the basking area.
Yeah, I honestly have no idea and as you said, signs seem to be so subtle. She was a bit lethargic compared to the others 2 nights ago, but she ate. The rest of them eat really well today and are super active, they seem to be doing great, fingers crossed.
My 5 torts from Chris have been doing great, but today one id dead. She was dead by the water container, and I am puzzled as to why? She was eating last night, although several nights ago she appeared lethargic and my wife found her once last week flipped over.

Water was below the base of the shell height and they were in their enclosure, so water was cold ish but enclosure was in the high 70's. They are all basking now, and eating as well. Silly accident with a sick kid and my b-day today we lost track of things in the evening, we typically soak...
That is solid advice, I like it and come to think of it, I think you are 100% right. I do have an infrared thermometer and I can occasionally check under the basking light, while this will be great for overall monitoring.
@jsheffield, thank you for the reply. The Govee is even cheaper and seems really slick. Based on what I see on Amazon, you don't need any external probes with it, you just place that white sensor where you want to.
