    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi guys, I'm about to buy a Giant day gecko and I need small help.
    My budget Is limited, so I'm planning to buy EXO terra, but next month, can I have it in an EXO Terra fauna box for a short period of time? I would like to use a heat mat under IT for setting apropriate temperatura, but I don't know If to buy 8w,13w,22w etc? all ofcourse for a time like 30 days cca. I want to know aswell If I'm suppose to put thé whole mat under thé box or if only a part of it So it can have an Area to cool Down. I'm new owner of crested gecko, but my kids wanted Phelsuma, so I must act I'm wandering If Its possible to handle Phelsuma, because to me, it looks bit skittish. Aswell If You could provide me with some tips for care Basic or advanced, some tips, Id be very greatfull. Thanx alot in advance to all of You Will to help, Iv found this fórum to be very useful and friendly to newcomers.

    I would start with this caresheet. also, there are several other caresheets in the caresheet subforum for similar species of Phelsuma. taken together they are pretty comprehensive.

    All Phelsuma are display geckos only. They are pretty skittish. No handling please.

    Can you buy Pangea's Complete Powdered Diets in the Czech Republic? That and crickets make a wholesome diet.

    A 10 or 20 gal aquarium would be fine for a short time but bigger is always better. Some PVC pipe for perches diagonal and horizontal a pothos plant and overhead basking lamp would be a good minimal start. Day geckos will not utilize undertank heaters most of the time. They prefer to bask with overhead lights.

    This is an excelllent dry diet: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pangea-Frui...red+gecko+diet

    That's also good for many Phelsuma.

    Can you provide UVB lighting once you buy your Exo Terra enclosure?
