I noticed your tank size, 10 gal. I have had advice on keeping young indigos in small tanks, BUT, it is extremely difficult to get any kind of heat gradient in that small of space, particularly with overhead. If you have to use that small of tank, use 2-3" of cypress mulch and an undertank heater no larger than 1/3 the tank size. That should work. A larger (longer) tank would be even better, then you can use a lamp to bring up temp on one side to about 85. I use no heat at all at night.
Good luck
John
