    I thought that it would be nice if I were to show the vivaria were my P.
    lineatus were being housed.

    This is the current setup where both are housed. I will likely that they will need to be split as I am noting some increasing aggression.

    This will become the home for the first to be captured.

    Both terraria have cycled over and plants are well established. Hopefully, by next Spring I will reintroduce the two into a 36x36x18 exoterra as a part of a Madagascar biotype.

    Question about their dietary needs....The geckos and I are in a house with its share of flies which are daily being sacrificed to the little green terrors, in addition to the standard dusted cricket diet every other day. They are also offered pangea diet every other day, plus slices of fresh fruit to lick every day. Am I overdoing the feeding?

    Nice setups. If it's too much food, they probably won't eat it.

    I almost think that banana is the source of the discord, the male does like his banana. She is the expert fly catcher......I've seen her leap 6", snatch flies mid-air, and make a perfect landing.

    Still a lot of chasing going on. There seems to be no real damage done. They both are eating their share of bugs. Over the course of time, they will eat small crickets, fruit flies,.....and a lot of house flies. She remains the ace with house flies, he stirs them up by chasing them around, she nails them as they buzz past her post on the fan....he gets pissed and chases her around the tank .
    I'm beginning to think that the chasing may have more to do with amorous intentions. The male is much brighter green as if he is displaying, she varies her color depending on mood. She must be getting more comfortable, she actually greened up a bit tonight.....after filling her belly with flies as he thrashed about scattering flies.

    The eggs remain nestled in their bed of peat moss.

    What are those starfish/octopus looking plants floating in the center? Would love to get some for my grandis pair.

    Great looking setup!

    I believe that you are referring to the tillandsia. They are tough little plants, but are epiphytic and are not secured well enough to bear much weight. I fear that a larger gecko would dislodge them. I doubt that there would be much damage to either gecko nor tillandsia, but it would be a PITA to have to keep re-securing them. I would check into Neoregalia, a much more robust epiphytic bromeliad. You should be able to hot glue them where you want them. Assuming that you have a larger enclosure, you could tie a grocery store Phaleanopsis orchid to the background or a piece of wood. They actually do pretty well in a high humidity environment and are rigid enough for a good size gecko....flowers are pretty cool, too.
