    Question 3 week old giant day geckos! Need insight on grow out setup


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I will be setting them up in a plastic bin with vents and a Zoomed overhead light to give UVB (13 watt bulb). I don't want to overheat them so I'm going to test how well that light heats the tank. Ideal temps for them are between 75 and 90 F, correct? This is just their grow out tank so I am not getting too detailed with it. Will put in some pothos, bamboo, and paper towels to start. Any other suggestions? Will also be feeding them Pangea with Insects formula till they are ready for pinhead crickets.

    for a growout tank it looks fine. as long as your temp ranges are all right, I think it's great.

    Great! Yeah, I think temps need some work. What are some good heating lights you would recommend. I've heard of puck lights being used but I didn't know if they were for heat or just light. Any other recommendations would be appreciated
