    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    We recently bought a leopard gecko for our 8yr old son. I am trying to make sure he has every thing he needs to live comfortably and correctly. We bought a kit from petsmart and he seems to be eating and drinking okay. We only have one temp gauge... Where is the best place to buy more ? How many do I need ? I have a picture I would like to share to see what all else you think this little guy or girl needs..but I need 2 more posts.

    Thanks

    I removed the "kit" decor that came with it and just added a tupperware bowl upside down with a hole cut in to it. with damp paper towels.. the size of the tank is only 10. Now I know I need to get a 20 but until then.. .how do
    I go about making a cool hide? Also what about a hot hide? is the moist hide supposed to be on the hot end on top of the side with the bottom heater pad?

    I have searched the forums here but not finding the exact answer, Thanks

    You may want to take a look at leopard gecko care sheets. Here's mine which focuses on what you need and why, what you don't need and why:

    Elizabeth Freer on this site also has a good caresheet that she updates regularly. You will see some differences in recommendations because there's more than one way to do things. I hope this is a good start for you.
