What temperature should my bearded dragon tank be?

My bearded dragon tank is at a usual 30 degrees Celsius/90 degrees Fahrenheit and 20 degrees at night/75 degrees Fahrenheit
the daytime temp is perfect. but bearded dragons are desert animals, which means if your going to keep them in captivity you must stimulate a desert lifestyle. deserts get much colder at night, i keep my tank at about 45 fahrenheit at night. however mine is much bigger now so his substrate is sand, during the night he burrows in the sand which is hot from the day, if yours is still a baby he cant have sand because he could eat it and impact his bowel. so if hes to small to burrow like he would naturally, then he should have a reptile carpet or someother safe substrate, and you should keep his tank at at least 60 degrees fahrenheit
Cool enough so that the explosives in the shells don
