    I feel bad for my geckos. I was trying to improve their habitat but instead I stressed the poor little ones out. Hopefully they will feel better once I have them in their 20 longs tomorrow and proper heat.

    Yep everything will be set up and they will have the hides they are use to. The room is about 70, but they are in the same room they were in before with no issues.

    Leopard geckos can take a lot of abuse. What I mean is they can survive many years of inappropriate conditions without showing major signs, suddenly organs start failure and sadly it’s over shortly after. You may hear of 1-2 miracles surviving past 20 yrs old, but it’s rare. You also don’t want them to just be surviving, instead thriving. If all they have is a warm spot, how active can you expect them to be? Imagine having only 11 inches of heat. Hell I have to think 3 times before I get out of bed every morning in the winter, but we have the option to turn up the thermostat.

    The more options you give them, the better they will be.

    Just slowly work on the 40 gallon until you reach the desired temps. Don’t move them back until it’s ready.

    I want my pets to thrive and they will have the same 11x17 enclosure. I am hoping to eventually be able to upgrade them again but that’s going to take some more experimenting before I make any decisions.

    I actually returned the 40 gallon, I do still have one on hand to experiment with when the time comes but who knows if I like this set up I may go an alternate route.

    I will not keep my pets in subpar conditions. My routine is check temps every night, clean any waste, spray humid hides and until they are older they are also fed every night. I immediately noticed the behavior change after they upgraded but I thought it was stress at first
