    Eco Earth's coco fiber is actually an insulator. So it may be easier to heat from above.

    Here's the way to get pictures out of that Attached Thumbnails box.
    1. At the foot of your post click the Edit Post button.
    2. Then click Go Advanced button.
    3. Scroll all the way down to Management Attachments. Click.
    4. Click: Add Files. Select a photo from your files and upload it.
    5. Drag that photo into the area underneath.
    6. Click both buttons on the right: Insert Inline and then click Done. Presto!

    Snow gives you more time to research heating in bioactive enclosures.

    From my reading here the soil has some calcium carbonate in it, would that harm the gecko at all? Also how would one replicate this mix?
    Forgot the link to the soil analysis https://www.desertmuseum.org/books/n...sert_soils.php

    Did some testing for a humid layer soil with organic potting soil as the contilr and had 3 variables, one with sand, another with wood chips and the last with both sand and wood. The best mix was with wood and I figured that but wanted to do some testing. I will have the soil and wood mixed 50/50 and add some crushed up egg shells for my CUC (isopods and springtails)
