    OK habitats complete. Got about a 1-3 year old in a big nice one and a baby one in another. went with one 20 gallon for the big one and an exo glass one for the baby. Ill post pics in a bit.

    my question:

    do i need to introduce the food and water or they will find it?

    do they usually just sit on a branch and just chill? not move at all for a whiille?

    thx
    Cresties usually find their food and water. There's no need to introduce them to those things.

    Cresties are most active in the evening or during the night.

    If both cresties eat a reputable dry diet like Pangea, dust the crickets at only 1 feeding per week with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3. I recommend the Zoo Med brand because it is manufactured with an excellent amount of calcium per dose. That D3 sticks around in a crestie's body for about 1 week and metabolizes any plain calcium the gecko eats.

    Question concerned...

    Hello.

    I am a little concerned. My wifes friend gave us a crested about 2 days ago. She had him in a tub with eco earth and food bowls and plants. he seems fine. we got him better habitat (20 gallon). we put down some rocks, netting and eco earth and some clean up crews. We put in trees, plants, pipe insulation etc. We put him in his new home day before yesterday. He has been in the same corner since that first day and has not moved that i know of. he might move around in the middle of the night but i am not up to see it. Yet same corner. we made him his pangea that first day and some water in the small bowls. We mist him twice a day and started to fog him this morning. i was told on another forum that it is normal. that he needs time to get used to his new home? i was also told not to handle him for a few days, just to let him be?

    any ideas? thx

    Is this the same gecko as in your "Crested gecko help needed" thread?

    How about some pictures of your crested geckos' enclosures?

    Is there lots of "cover" for it/them to hide? Generally all geckos take a bit of time to adjust to most all changes in their surroundings. I agree. Just let him be. Handling right now will delay his adjustment.

    Do you have a digital hygrometer to measure room humidity where your enclosures sit? Humidity bounces around like Tigger! Unless you live in a particularly dry area "fogging" may add too much humidity along with 2 daily mistings. What your cresties are looking for is humidity at night ~80-90%. Then the humidity should drop to 40-60% during the day.

    It's a different question, but still all related to a recently acquired gecko, so it's easier to keep it all in the same thread. I've merge this with your original thread. That keeps things all in one place.
    If it had been a while since the first thread, then starting a new one would be okay, but this can all be part of the "new gecko advice" topic.
