    OK.....

    My water is quite hard too! :/

    I think I may have a solution for him. I don't even really need to mist the glass where I can see it anyway.

    You will want to have a feeding ledge in there ... and misting is up to you, just remember they need the nutrients but not the chemicals .... distilled is good for reducing the hard water on the glass ... but bottled or tap is better for the gecko ...

    Looks good otherwise!

    I just ordered a ledge, and he is not currently being listed with distilled, and in the big terrarium he will have a dish full of dechlorinated water

    I've found that ledges aren't necessary. I feed all of my geckos on the ground and everyone can find their food.
    I also use paper towels so it makes it a little easier as far as for feeding worries.
    But yes, because you have a particulate substrate a feeding ledge may be a good idea. It will help reduce the risk of impaction.

    I am very careful with my pets, I don't want him eating anywhere near the exo earth. I will probably tong feed any insects just to be on the safe side. I do worry a bit about the depths of the cups for a little one though

    The small cups are perfect for babies. All of mine can get in there and eat without any problems.

    Once the gecko ledge gets here, I am really debating going ahead and moving Pongo into this habitat, I know its a bit big for him but he wants to climb more and is not all that active in his current set up.

    I went ahead and added the other two reptile vines I had on hand, what do you think?

    Well the set up is finally finished, Though I may end up adding a few plants on the left side if Pongo seems bothered by being able to see the outside world.
