    They sadly don't carry medium at any location including Amazon.ca although today is my birthday and a bunch of my clients/customers/friends in my discord all started donating money all day so i got him a few things with that. I tried to get my hands on a dish to put on the glass but its cheaper at petsmart so when they restock im going to get it from there since PetSmart has them for 24.99 and Amazon seems to want like 35 and 45 for the same thing. No point in over paying he is fine right now with the dish i use. I am going to purchase the Exo Terra Ficus Silk Plants Large over the weekend tho since they have it locally it seems . as for the living plant that might have to wait until my next pay date. :P So far due to his picky food habbit i've spent way to much on him in the last 4 days and i've gotten so many new things for his enclosure etc i think he will be okay after i get him the Exo Terra Ficus Silk Plants but i am going to keep investing more and more because i aboslutely love this little guy so i will be keeping intouch quiet a bit with you since you have been so darn helpful. I will also update you once the Digital Hydrometer is here so don't you worry this thread will continue going until i finally got everything down pat

    (Amazon Order From Tonight)
    Zee Med CF95 Natural Cork Bark Round(small)
    Pann-Plax 15x8-Inch Lizard Lounger(Small)



    Note: I also don't want to buy anything that isn't from say Exo Terra or any other well known brands for reptiles simply because idk what types of say plastic or whatever it is made of and i don't want my little guy getting sick just because im cheap sometimes. So i am only purchasing items that are branded for Reptiles by reputable companies such as Exo Terro, Thrive, and a few other companies

    Happy, Happy, Birthday, Buttons! I hope you had a good celebration.

    Thumbs up on the small Zoo Med cork bark round. Not sure about the triangular sea grass hammock.

    I just tried to look it up and i didnt find it sadly, You can browse amazon.ca just by typing it in. It won't default back to USA unless you type in amazon.com

    Also i got him that Pann-Plax 15x8-Inch Lizard Lounger(Small) because i wanted to have something up at the top of the enclosure that would stick properly as he is small and my biggest worry is him falling so him having something he can climb on might be a good idea also the price was very good considering locally for the same one it was double the price and yes from the same company lol. I want to pick him up a coconut like ball with a hole in it so he can hang out in it around the top of his enclosure Just need to find some more items at ReptilesRus so its worth making the order since their shipping is flat rate 15 dollars.

    OH! Right also i weighed him today and he weighed 3.90grams and he is 2 Months 1 day old.

    I had 2nd thoughts about the triangular 3-D sea grass hide I linked for Buttons. That's why I removed it. It was "hanging"; the leaves were probably silk.

    More thumbs up for your comparison shopping!

    I always purchase name brand items that have good reviews and are trusted by the majority of the population surrounding that certain item such as Reptiles i go for ZooMed and Exo Terro stuff mainly although for the bedding i go with Thrive as its available locally and its really good so far it might cost a bit more then papertowel but it last a whole lot longer and can be cleaned using my distilled water and such which is nice. Not that i plan to never buy something again because when i see the bedding getting worn or old i plan to switch it out and buy new one but for 14.99 i get a lot of nice bedding from Thrive and so far he likes it i just cut it in half and i get 2 bedding out of it.

    Although yeah typically i only make orders from certain places depending on what i am purchasing unless it is an emergency. Also i do like to stock up on things when i see a good deal and such so if you know of anything i should just have in the house hold for my little buddy Because sometimes relying on CanadaPost and such isn't the best thing to do for example Walmart shipping out my Digital Thermometer+Hydrometer on Monday and its still says it is in Toronto even tho we are going on friday now.. (Trust me i complained) Although sadly there was no other place i was able to get a digital Thermometer+Hydrometer in my area all places were either sold out or don't typically carry them. Petsmart did have a Thermometer but not a Hydrometer and i know that my Analog Thermometer is working fine so it wasn't a big rush for me to get that so i figured i had no choice but to wait for the combo one from Walmart. Oh and since we are on that subject do you have any recommendations on where i should sit the Thermometer/Hydrometer thing on the digital setup once i get it? I don't know if i could set it behind the backdrop area or if i should just set it hanging in the tank/enclosure. If you need me to i can take a second video of the inside of the enclosure and where everything sits around properly.

    I thought you mentioned your analog was busted.

    My digital thermometers and hygrometers all have probes. Could you get a hygrometer/thermometer with a probe instead? I place the probe in a key place.

    Tell me more about your distilled water. Are you giving Buttons distilled water? I've used tap water for the 32 years I've kept geckos -- even in Seattle and now on the Northwest Oregon Coast. I've never had any problem doing that.

    I use distilled and bottled water depending on whats available i refuse to use the tap water here as i live in Windsor Ontario and our water comes from the detroit river and has so many chemicals in it i won't even drink it. Hell i buy bottled water for my cat thats how much i don't trust the tap water.

    Also the Thermometer i have works for sure but its a 2 in 1 combo and its analog so regardless i don't trust it and i feel like the Hydrometer part is busted.

    This is the LCD Digital 2in1 Thermometer & Hydrometer with probe that i bought from walmart and i am still waiting on it. I just want to know where i should place the probe for best result once it arrives.

    Hang the digital combo's probe so it reaches the middle of the enclosure. Kept the digital itself outside the enclosure. Can you stick it on the outside of the enclosure?

    Don't use distilled water at all. I recommend bottled fresh spring water for Buttons' drinking and misting water.

    Yes i can do that no problem. The enclosure has special little holes to insert a digital probe and such, I just wanted to make sure if i can hang it inside where Buttons can access it or if i should hide it behind the background.

    Also i've been using the distilled water for misting and his food for about 5 days now and he has been going at his food more. Previously i was using bottled spring water and he wasn't a fan of it. much. I'll try again tho. Also is it possible for me to use distilled for misting but then use bottled for his little dish and food? I'm just wondering because i understand there are some minerals in the bottled water that will do him some good but for the misting i would like to stick to distilled as it doesn't mess up my enclosure as much as the bottled water. Or perhaps i could mist with bottled water once a day and distilled the rest of the time?. Unless you know of an extremely good way to get rid of the horrible water spots that bottled water leaves and gets my enclosure all yucky and then cleaning it with hot water doesn't tend to work i've just had it with that honestly and i was reading on an other forum that distilled water is okay for them so thats why i switched to it.

    @Hilde I realize you're following this thread too. Please chime in re what type water you use for spraying geckos in Ontario and for their water dishes.
