    Sounds like you’ll soon be all fine and dandy ... just one last thing though .. you mentioned you set the thermostat to 90F .... remember that’s just a rough guide and really you can discount it for all intents and purposes.

    Use a ‘probed’ digital thermometer or even better a digital temp gun for those vital surface temps on the warm side and under the warm hide ..

    As said above, don't just trust the temp on the thermostat. I have the thermostat probe sandwiched between the glass and the UTH under the tank. On my hot side the temp stays on 95 degrees to keep the glass surface at 89 degrees. On my cool side the thermostat stays on 80 degrees and keeps the tank surface at 79 degrees. Those are not always accurate, that is why the temp gun is important.
