    Is your gecko not eating? <---most of your concerns about not eating can be answered here.

    Other thread: Best Humidity for Leopard Geckos?

    Where do you live? That will help us guide you.

    4 days is not unusual for a new juvie not to have eaten.

    A water dish will help with ambient humidity, but only so much.

    Overhead heat dries out the vivarium more. Leos depend upon belly heat to digest their prey. I suggest an 8 x 12 inch Zoo Med under tank heat mat instead of overhead heat: ReptiTherm® U.T.H.

    Here's a temperature guide for all leopard geckos as measured by the probe of a digital thermometer
    • 88-92 F (31.1-33.3 C) floor/ground temperature right underneath a leo's warm dry hide
    • no greater than 85 F (29.4 C) air temperature - 4 inches above ground on the warm end
    • no greater than 75 F (23.9 C) air temperature - 4 inches above ground on the cool end

    A leo needs 3 hides: warm moist, warm dry, and cool dry hides.

    Here's a warm moist hide you can make:

    What type overhead heat do you have? If it's too bright, it will stress your leo.

    Please link your day bulb.

    What size is your UTH?

    If we determine some overhead heat is necessary, best to get a ceramic heat emitter. It emits heat but no light.

    Have you a digital thermometer with a probe to measure ground temperatures?
