    Thank you for responding yet again. I'll look into getting a reptisun in that case, since I got this gecko for his colors. My temps match those specs pretty well. About those rice looking things, one more has appeared so at this point I think it has to be poop, but for some reason its a beige-white. Thanks for telling me how to plant the Pothos. The plant I bought is already over a foot in diameter, so how much should I start with? Thanks.

    I have to say that I have pothos planted directly into my coco fiber enclosures and it fills the enclosure. Probably the poop and the cleanup crew helps it to thrive.

    Do I need to have springtails or something like that, or can I have a bioactive set up without those?

    Go with the Reptisun! Your Phelsuma should thrive with Reptisun's 5.0 UVB bulb!

    Pangea may be turning the poop beige-white. Something may be "off". You could have a fecal done by a vet.

    It sounds like your pothos is too big to use as is. Can you see roots sticking out from the main stems right below the leaves? Start new plants with those root sections. Then group them together and plant in a smaller pot.

    Use organic potting soil OR plant your pothos into a pot filled with 100% Wonder Worms brand pure hummus. While a Wonder Worms/coco fiber mix works nicely for snake plants, my first experiment showed the pothos needed something more.

    You can have a naturalistic setup without adding a CUC (clean up crew).

    Springtails could be part of the CUC. They'll eat poop.

    I'll wait to see if there's a change in his behavior, otherwise it might just be the Pangea. Yes my plant does have root sections coming out of the "mini-stems" attached to the main stem. I also heard you can use cuttings to plant pothos. I'll probably make a plastic pot out of part of a plastic bottle, and use potting soil. I don't think I'll bother with a clean up crew.

    That's an excellent way to recycle plastic!

    You're welcome, Josh.

    I'd love to see your vivarium after you've added the pothos.
