View Full Version : Gonatodes vittatus enclosure

Hello all,
I just recieved a Gonatodes vittatus and am wondering what size enclosure I should set him up in.

I had an exo terra all ready for his arrival but I wasn't expecting him to be so small. Anyhow I am now thinking of setting him up in a deli cup with a siliconed screen lid and placing that in a tank with heat and fluorescent over that. This is how I set up my hatchling klemmeri which are smaller than the vittatus, but not by a whole lot.

Pics are of current set up and of set up for hatchling klemmeri.

Any thoughts?

Also, I am feeding Drosophila melanogaster and D. hydei. Sound good? I have done Phelsuma for a while and wanted to try these guys out. Let me know if everything seems ok.

Depending on how small it is, I would stick with crickets for those guys. Thats what I feed mine, and they do fine. I think fruit flies are too small.
