    Default Robust velvet gecko vivarium questions.

    Oedura Robusta.
    I bought a pair of these guys and intended on keeping them individually in 30x30x30cm glass terrariums and eventually move them into a bigger enclosure when I'm ready to breed.
    The bloke I bought these from had all different species paired up in 30x30 cubes, now I'm being smashed on another forum for the enclosure being too small.

    What sort of substrate and furnishings do these guys require, is Coco peat suitable?
    Would a bioactive vivarium be suitable?
    Has anyone got any photos of their O.robusta set up they can share?
    Cheers Ryan

    I unfortunately haven't kept this species myself, but know a few breeders who have had them in the past, so hopefully I can be of some help.

    As I'm sure you've been told, a more suitable terrarium size would be 10-15 gallons. Coco peat works perfectly fine, and I don't see any reason why a bioactive vivarium wouldn't be suitable for these little guys. I've heard they especially like to hide under leaves and bark, so cork bark, branches, and dried leaves would all be good additions to their terrariums. They're originally from woodlands near rainforests in Australia, so I'd recommend doing a bit of research on that area and see what'll work for your terrariums. Good luck!
