    Hi micah ~

    Happy New Year!

    Really loud music could stress out your leos especially if they can feel the vibrations going: BOOM, BOOM, BOOM.

    How far apart can you locate the geckos and your new subs?

    You are welcome.

    I'm not sure micah. Seems like a medium volume might be OK, just not LOUD. If you can feel vibrations from the music going BOOM, BOOM, the geckos will be able to feel it too.

    How far apart can you locate your geckos from the subs?

    it depends on their hearing range?

    if you play music in a room where mice are kept, sometimes they will not breed (or will do stress-related things, like the female eating her litter or going off food). it's not even related to volume, it's because they hear in a different range and the sound causes stress. more volume just means more stress.

    I'm not sure if this matters to geckos at all, but I would watch for signs of stress.
