Warm side temp

Hello everyone, first time posting. Im new to the corn snake hobby and i had a question about tank temps. I have a 2 month old corn snake in a 20h tank with a 60 w deep heat Projector on one end and a 5.0 UVB on the other end. The warm and gets to around 80 at the substrate and its on a day/ night timer. Is that an ok temps?

That's a bit lower than I'd like. I shoot for about 87 on the warm side. Make sure there are a few hides and some leafy ground cover on the UVB side too. I'm also uncomfortable leaving a baby with no heat overnight, during digestion especially. Since your heat doesn't emit light, I would leave that on overnight and just have the UVB go off overnight.

Is your DHP connected to a thermostat?
