    Hi! Iíve had my gecko for about six months now, and yesterday I decided to get a larger tank (20 gal). And I wanted to know if my setup is okay or if I need a special UV light along with my heat lamp. He spends most of his time in his cave, but for the first time in a while, I saw him basking under the heat lamp. I feed him for two days in a row, then a one day break. I feed him 3-5 small sized crickets, mealworms. I have attached some an images of my setup belowC0B2B84D-AE56-48D4-8BC4-333B89230EF7.jpg5766295D-ECA8-4399-AC09-D78158E8E148.jpgC83EB5F2-9088-4D37-9614-45B36A6B6485.jpgAA6B9A41-EF32-426F-8718-6055BAFCC74A.jpg4E8A92A9-8638-4710-8D52-CC9D7C723D74.jpg

    Which side is the cool side? I would add a humidity hide in the warm side.

    The cool side is the side with his cave. I provide a damp hide when he is ready to shed, though, but I find if I leave it out he doesn't want to come out to eat, so I only put it in for a week at a time

    I was confused because I noticed a heat mat on the side of the glass. It will be best to leave the humidity hide in at all times as it helps with keeping him hydrated. If he is hungry, he should come out to eat. Have you tried coaxing him out by dangling an insect in front of the hide opening?

    You want to provide a hide over the warm side as well so that he can access the heat and feel secure.
