    Post Hello!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi everyone! I'm Khol, and I'm new to both geckos and the forum.

    I just got my first geckos yesterday- a pair of Yellow Headed dwarfs (Gonadotes albogularis). I've had frogs and toads, and have multiple fish tanks, but these guys are my first venture into reptiles, so I'll probably have a lot of questions, and I figure this is the best place to be to find help. I'm already in love with these little guys!

    Welcome! I actually also got a single male G. fuscus (which is actually G. albogularis fuscus). What are you keeping them in? This species is a little bigger than some of the other micro geckos I've had, but I have had problems with escape from the exo-terras. I now have them taped in places I hadn't even thought of before!

    Thanks! I've currently got them in a regular 10 gallon, with plenty of hiding places and things to climb on. I'm so paranoid about them escaping, I'm keeping mosquito netting over the top so it stays covered even if I lift the screen top (and also to keep the fruit flies from escaping). They're so good at hiding too, I'm afraid I'd never know if one of them slipped out! But so far so good, I spotted both of them this afternoon. This is my current setup. I'd like to eventually transition to live plants.

    Very nice! Think about getting a front-opening Exo-terra or ZooMed enclosure. There's some extra taping up that needs to be done but you don't have to worry about them escaping out the top.

    I'm already eyeing taller enclosures for them! My cage space is fairly limited right now because all the surfaces in my room have fish tanks on them, and the clearance on the shelf where their tank sits isn't enough for one of the ExoTerras. If I can free up one of my end tables, though, I'll definitely be getting these guys an upgrade.
