    Perfect As almost everyone says your tank seems to be perfect for one leopard gecko.
    You were doing the right things. I just suggest to put a calcium dish at all time in your terrarium. If they feel the need for calcium they should always have some. Even if he doesnt eat some. ( like mine does , He never ate in the calcium dish ).
    I see that theres some Mom and pop stores but even if they dont stock any , Cou can always ask to order one. Just make sure to get it the same day they will receive it.
    I dont think it is more expensive.

    Keep us informed about your future gecko.

However I have noticed at night that the temps in the tank may actually be a little higher than during the day. I assume this is because the AC does not cycle on at night as much since it is cooler, so the tank can heat up more. However, it was only a few degrees different.
    Hey there! Really sorry about your run of bad luck

    I wouldn't worry AT ALL about your temps. To be honest I wouldn't even bother with the red light at the cool end. Keeping a light over the warm end during the day by all means is absolutely fine. At the end of the day, if the gecko's cold it'll go to the warm side, temps at the cool end being in the 70's really shouldn't be a problem, they go through worse in the wild! As long as the heat matt is at high 80s to low 90s - you're sorted. Having a high air temp isn't even essential, mines just got his UTH, no lamp

    Really hope you have better luck in the future

    Sorry your last leo's died. MY last one died too at 2 1/2 months. His name was bailey. I miss him sooooooo much. I got him from petco. (Not the best idea). So I wanted to let you know that you're not alone. And good luck with your next leo.

    This post is 9 years old. Even if his geckos survived and lived happily ever after, some of them are probably dead by now.

    If you don't want to wait for an expo or show to come to your area, consider ordering online. This can be daunting but most breeders that ship their reptiles out have good reviews and are a good option if you don't mind paying for shipping.

    This thread is too old to bother replying. Please consider the thread posting date before replying, the original problem would have been taken care of by now, over 8 years later.
