    I planned on putting the DHP on one corner of the cage and then the uvb right next to it on the other corner, and then the jungle dawn will go in the middle, still debating if the DHP and uvb should go front or back but I’ll see after it’s planted and built, everything is still on its way for the enclosure, I feel really satisfied with all the plants and wood I picked out and excited for the build.
    Here's the required order along the screen top either from left to right or from right to left:
    1. First Frankie's DHP
    2. Then Arcadia's UVB ShadeDweller
    3. Then the LED for plants

    The DHP & the ShadeDweller should sit side-by-side!



    I’ve spoke people who use uvb and they still feed Pangea and repashy just fine because it’s a fixed amount of d3 is those things , it’s pretty low, and they just don’t dust bugs with d3 and if they do only like once a month,
    OK

    The calcium without d3 and reptivite without d3 have arrived today so if I start feeding cgd again how exactly should I go about the multivitamin and all?

    1. For Frankie's well-being please continue being patient.
    2. Frankie's nowhere near ready for another cgd trial. Frankie's already given a pretty definite "No!" to cgd. It hasn't been long enough since he turned up his nose.
    3. I highly recommend NOT attempting cgd until Frankie has adjusted to his huge new home with all the trimmings. That means:
    4. Let Frankie totally recover his stick! Frankie will be unable to fully enjoy his huge enclosure until he can totally stick! [A couple minutes ago I gave my much older crestie a "stick" test. He has no trouble sticking & climbing my wooden closet doors. He has no trouble sticking & climbing my lightly textured bedroom walls.]
    5. Let Frankie complete ALL his liquid calcium glubionate.
    6. Let Frankie reach 110% and be comfortable in his new enclosure prior to experimenting with cgd again.
    7. Follow Frankie's total bug diet with all recommended supplements -- one of two schedules you screenshot on your phone. IF you can't find the schedule on your phone, please scroll back on this thread to my post.
    8. At this time Frankie still needs supplementing with all 3 Zoo Med's supplements you now have.
    9. Frankie might enjoy climbing brown textured Exo Terra Jungle Vines. Try twisting a thick vine with a thin vine.

    I’m getting kinda confused again haha, since his stick is returning I figured I don’t have to do strictly bug anymore ?
    That isn't true.
    Am I confusing you?



    (Same shadedweller yes)

    And you tuber I like @lepoard gecko has a chahouoa (idk how to spell) and they feed them Pangea and use the same shadedweller
    Please copy & paste one of @leopard gecko's YouTube videos right here.


    So now should I even use the reptivite??
    Reptivite could be more beneficial to Frankie than Repashy's Calcium Plus according to Scott Stahl, DVM, on link 132. See above.


    I usually put him a container with the bugs I give him or Tong feed.
    Feeding containers let a gecko be more independent while eating.

    The hygrometer reads 71 during day this past week it’s usually like 74 buts it’s been so much colder this week and the humidity goes to 50 - 60 % , then at night right after I spray the humidity thing says 99% but then goes down within like 30 minutes to about 80% - 85% and the temp is 68, I’m having a hard time holding humidity in the tank.
    The thermostat for the DHP just shipped out it’s far too cold so he definitely needs it.
    IF maintaining a decent ambient humidity during days is difficult, consider adding 2-3 inches of hydroton clay culture balls/marbles for the "floor" of Frankie's 24 x 18 x 24 inch enclosure. Water these marbles occasionally when the humidity drops.

    Separate these marbles from your next substrate layer with fine netting or Easy Growers' Weedblock Cloth.

    To increase ambient humidity, just add water. Don't add water IF the humidity is fine.
