Hi Rich---

I question the advisibility of your 100% sand substrate, because these geckos appreciate some degree of ambient humidity. I have 5.4 Oedura castelnaui. They all have substrates of 50/50 peat moss/cocopeat fiber. Their nest boxes are 50/50 cocopeat fiber/Jurassic Reptile Sand. Several years ago I had a bad experience using even a 50/50 blend of peat moss/Jurassic Reptile Sand. This female Oc did recover from two total prolapses, but it wasn't a pretty sight and required emergency vet care in the middle of the night on both occasions. At least right before the initial prolapse I had fed and sprayed simultaneously. Since then I also keep a small dish of calcium in the cage.

Make certain your Oedura castelnaui have hiding places. Otherwise your cages are quite attractive!

The next time I redo the cages I'm thinking of going with 100% cocopeat fiber.
