    Default Former Lurker, Now a Member!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! I'm a former lurker who has decided to become a member as I finally have a question that doesn't seem to have been answered before!

    (will be posting question under the Feeders, Food, & Nutrition forum)

    About me: long-time gecko admirer, first-time gecko parent.

    I was introduced to leopard geckos over fifteen years ago and fell in love with them. It wasn't until last year that I decided to finally own a leopard gecko of my own. I did a lot of research during that time and I'm still learning.

    Six months ago I didn't buy just one leopard gecko...I bought two. I couldn't decide between two geckos from a vendor at a reptile expo...so I got both!

    My geckos are:

    Gono: Male Atomic Inferno (although I have yet to find anywhere online that describes the "Atomic" morph).

    Duba Duba: Female Eclipse Mac Snow.

    Each is housed in a 20L aquarium - and I am still working to improve their enclosures. Gono's is on top & Duba Duba's on the bottom. The lamps are just CFL bulbs that generate no heat - trying to simulate day/night cycle.

    I've begun breeding my own feeder insects - mainly house crickets and mealworms. I am considering breeding additional feeder insects.

    My other pets include axolotls (eight at the moment) and a dog (Lhasa Apso).

    wow those are some beautifull geckos, I mean just wow I can see why you couldn't choose. I have one question, do you have a under tank heater? their enclosures look amazing!! i really like the Atomic,

    I have only one gecko named Citrine (a yellow gemstone) I named her before I knew she was a Mack Snow.

    Thank you! Yes - each has a heat mat (and thermostat) under the hide on the right side. I tried squeezing the moist hide close to the warm hide to get some of the effects of the heat mat, but the heat mat is only big enough to cover the warm hide. I thought about upgrading to a bigger mat (one that takes up 1/2 the floor space vs. 1/3), but it doesn't seem necessary at this point. Next upgrades I'm planning are backgrounds and proper lighting - I have my eye on Arcadia's Shade Dweller lamps.

    Citrine is a good name! My Mack Snow has been developing more yellow as she ages.
