Hello Ian , I'm Dr. Deb.
I recently came online and see that your question about George hasn't been answered. I'm sorry that you've had to wait for a response but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.

The best temperature for George would be 24.4 C overnight. I prefer a ceramic heat emitter or a night black bulb which will provide enough warmth overnight for him.

17-18 degrees C is way too cool for him.

I hope this helps; again, my apologies for the delayed response. Deb
