    Very good in regards to the humidity range now. Which uvb bulb exactly? How does he react when you put it on?

    The bulb that came with the ceramic heat emitter is a LUCKY HERP Reptile UVB Compact Fluorescent Lamp

    Its really bright, so he prefers to stay in his hides, but when i turn it on he does come out and sit for a little while before switching hides.

    The humidity sounds excellent!

    I'm glad you've cut back soaking.

    Be really cautious using "off brand" UVB bulb rays in an 18 x 18 inch enclosure. What strength is this bulb?

    Its a 26 W bulb and the box says it outputs 15% UVB.

    Do you have the the list of tested UVB by any chance? I have it somewhere but I have so much saved it’s going to take me forever to find it.

    I know they have Arcadia bulbs that seem to be picking up in popularity. Do you recall which one Dr. Baines use on her leopard gecko enclosures?

    You can place the fixture towards one corner. Zoo med 5.0 is what I have experience with using. I do recall reading a study in which Arcadia was more effective than Zoo Med

    I am sorry for the misunderstanding, I have a 20 gallon and she is always exploring, smelling, and climbing things, she is also a very active hunter, ( by saying this I wish to clarify that se does get enough to eat, as many mealworms or crickets as she wants as long as she doesn't get fat) I am sorry that I did not understand your message as was meant, It is my fault I did not realize you meant the sick gecko ( which know that I think about it I know I sound stupid because, like, what other gecko would we be talking about ) and I apoligize for the long message I just wanted to point out that it is my fault.

    I am please to announce that my vet called today telling me to stop giving him the antibotics since he hasnt coughed up anything in a week.
    Also this morning i offered him some meal worms and he showed intrest but did not go after the worms.
    This evening however when i arrived home he was out of his hides sitting by his food bowl and i offered him a meal worm and once it moved around a bit he gobbled it right up! I offered him another, this time dusted with calcium powder, he ate that one too. He ate 5 meal worms before going into his hide!
