    I have always used regular unsoftened tap water, for 30 years, so it must work.
    Water dishes for the cresteds are 3.5" glazed ceramic flowerpot saucers, which you can find just about anywhere, including Walmart, Home Hardware, Home Depot, and garden centres.

    Would you happen to know any type of bottled water i could use? As i said before the tap water locally here isn't something i would even drink the pipes in this apartment complex are old and have not been updated not to mention the water does come from the Detroit river here which isn't the cleanest so our water is heavy in chemicals and such.

    Also in regards to misting is there anything then you would suggest that could help clear out the water spots? As i was saying before even if i am to clean the glass daily the water spots do get really hard to remove with just warm/hot water. Hence i was asking if it is possible to limit the amount of misting with the normal water and maybe use distilled from time to time.

    As for his dishes right now im using small plastic caps as he doesn't eat much although i am looking into getting him a nice dish that can latch onto the side of the enclosure. Just waiting for the weather to be decent enough to where my fibromyalgia isn't flaring up to jump on the bus and go to pet smart as i did find a nice suction cup one there for a decent price.

    Other then that i was just informed by allreptiles.ca that the reason my order is delayed is due to the fact they are completely out of Small Jungle Vines. They have just emailed me asking if i would like a free upgrade to the Small Moss Jungle Vines to which i said yes as i really need my Pangea and ReptiCalcium with D3. So i do hope he likes the upgraded vines.

    I recommend the large diameter Jungle Vines, if the small ones aren't available.

    The moss jungle vines don't last nearly as long. When they are cleaned, the moss easily rubs off. :/

    Suction cup feeding dishes ARE very risky. Wait for a nice clamp dish.

    What about a magnetic? Also yeah no they only gave me the option to sadly upgrade to the Moss Jungle Vines(small) and sadly i had to say yes because again thats the shipment im waiting for in order to get his Pangea food and such. So i will have to just go with this for now and ill just upgrade them later sadly yes it'll cost me more money in the end but i guess im just stuck with this option for now.

    A magnetic clamp feeding dish works.

    I always check in via laptop, not a smart phone. It's easy to reread when I need to.

    I suggest bottled fresh spring water, if you have that choice. I don't know particular brands.

    1. Are you buying distilled water?
    2. How was it distilled?
    3. Which forum suggested distilled water is safe?
    4. My link states that Buttons risks severe problems when he licks distilled water off the sides and off the cage furnishings. Buttons might use his water dish, but just as much he licks droplets where they fall.
    5. Hilde also lives in Ontario -- same province as you. Her home has older plumbing too. I've not heard that she ever upgraded that. She's given you heartfelt advice about Ontario water and her geckos.
    6. Hilde, our geckos, and I have lived a good many years drinking tap water!
    7. I don't know how to remove calcium build-up caused by spraying.
    8. Let's revisit misting after your digital hygrometer arrives.

    This is where i was reading about it. https://www.moonvalleyreptiles.com/e...ter%20deposits.

    water.jpg

    Also i just came back from PetSmart and got Buttons some new Exo Terra Ficus Silk Medium its all they had but its big and will do nicely on the side of the tank i think. also got him a taller tree and i am removing the old small out from there. So i will be posting updating photos / maybe video soon'ish. Other then that again like if there is Bottled Water i can buy ill go buy it just tell me a brand you think would be suitable for him. I just really don't trust the tap water around here where i live. Also our water comes out brown sometimes and we have a lot of water preasure issues here. The building is a heritage building built in 1927 like its just not super good at all. When i first moved here i did give my cat the tap water and it made him sick and have diarrhea which is why he only drinks bottled water now.

    Buttons upgraded enclosure, So far he seems to like it and it does look a lot better to. Only thing im missing now is a dish to put up which as you can see in the video i do have a small cap with his food in the middle of the enclosure which is easy to find for him. Hopefully this is functional because there goes an other 114 Canadian Dollars hahaha although he now has loads of areas to hide his CorkBark will be here monday so im going to find away to get that in there to give him a nice hide. If anything i might have to cut it up because i feel like it will be to long idk yet. Although this seems a lot nicer for him and i added a bit more moss around the bottom of the tank to help with humidity.

    NOTE: If any issues with youtube video let me know my girlfriend said she was having issues viewing it in America for some reason which i find odd because i didnt add any restrictions

    I love your new silk ficus & Buttons does too! What an AWESOME addition to Buttons' home. Buttons looks pretty comfortable hanging out there. He'll lick water from all those leaves! This ficus contributes to humidity.

    This YouTube video came through fine.

    I don't recommend cutting the cork bark hide/tunnel shorter. How about leaning it against the enclosure's side or back at a diagonal? I'm positive Buttons will discover it.

    I suggest bottled fresh spring water, if you have that choice. I don't know particular brands.
