    One other reason to avoid the repti-carpet ... their little claws can be impacted by the "astro-turf" type carpet ...

    I use the national geograpgic wipes on the kritter keepers, but a stronger cleaner with scrubber on the glass tanks. In either care, always rinse with hot water and dry completely ... the best I found (but can't find now) was a cleaning product called HEALTHY HABITAT ... with a bit of elbow grease after spraying it, it got rid of the hard water marks even!

    Always be sure to remove the gecko when doing a big clean ... of course LOL

    As for the tank size, that would do great for adult gecko for sure.

    My cresties all get the repashy mango superblend .... they love it!

    If you want to avoid hard water marks use distilled water.

    Here's a quote from an article @amsdadtodd wrote in January 2016. For the entire article scroll to post 122 in my Leo Caresheet. Use the post numbers on the left side.

    "Beware, not all filtered water is as good as you'd think. Some types of ion exchange filters soften water by "trading" chemicals to soften water. Honestly, most hard water can be softened just by boiling it."

    ......

    "Distilled water and RO/DI water both have largely the same risks. They are so purified that when they are ingested, they may leach nutrients from the tissues they pass through. In other words, the absence of any dissolved compounds in a solution creates an imbalance when it passes through the body of any organism. That imbalance is resolved by robbing dissolved minerals from the body tissue. This can lead to degradation of intestinal walls to the point of causing diarrhea. The same goes for humans. If we drink this ultra-pure water, it will sicken us quickly."
