    Question Not sure if my setup is done right or if my two Nehprurus Levis are eating


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I've had my two young Levis for just under a week now. They are in a 60x40x45 URS enclosure. I have a heat mat (connected to a thermostat) under the right hand half of the tank, the sand is 50mm deep on that side, and around 25mm deep on the cool side. There is a hide on each side. The temp in the middle of the hot side just under the surface is about 30degrees. Does this sound okay?

    The other problem I'm having is that I haven't seen the geckos eat. I've put some medium woodies in, and some small crickets. Each night the geckos come out from their hides and walk around the tank. Sometimes they stop for a few seconds and plant their ass and then get up and walk to a new spot. They seem to just walk past the crickets and ignore them. Is this normal? I'm getting a little worried.

    This is really common in the smooth knob tails, they get stressed out by food really easily. Keep up on moisture, do not feed for 3 days or so. They will adjust relax and get hungry. Constant food stressing out the gecko is no good, especially from an eager owner who wants to fatten up. The geckos are new and need adjustment, assuming that they're healthy. I do not see any problems with your setup, what are your temperature gradients on the cool and warm side?

    So my advice is not let them see food for a few days...and if you can restrain from holding and removing them from their enclosure....
