    Just posted the 36x18x36 paludarium I designed which I plan to house multiple of the same smaller species of day gecko and possibly some salamanders that are of the same size. Does anyone think it would he a problem? I have had day geckos for almost 10 years now. The day geckos will be hiding in the top parts anyways where its warmer, and if they’re the same size animals, I doubt there would be any issue. But let me know if anyone thinks otherwise. I know in general mixing species is a no no but I think this could work.

    since salamanders secrete toxins and geckos lick everything, I would not pair these two together.

    That is a very good point! Do you think Newts would be an issue?

    Newts are a type of salamander, belonging to a subfamily called Pleurodelinae of the family Salamandridae. Essentially, all newts are salamanders. The same toxin caution applies to newts.

    What about smaller species of frogs or toads? Could they be compatible with day geckos?

    I have heard that some people keep dart frogs with day geckos.

    dart frogs also secrete toxins, tho at lower levels in captivity than in the wild. all amphibians secrete toxins to one degree or another and the same concern applies.

    why not just enjoy the geckos themselves? especially if you have a species where you can keep multiples in a tank without aggression issues?

    I absolutely understand the impulse, lol. but I tend to err on the side of caution; it would suck to lose a bunch of animals over something like this.
