    Default My daughter's new leo and tank setup


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello guys. I was on here back in 2013 when I thought I was gonna get a gecko then for my son. Fast forward to now and have a son and daughter. And now she wanted one actually both still want one. So I set up a 20L today and brought home our first female. She's a few months old and looks to be a tangerine. Posable carrot tail but not sure how much of the tail has to be to be considered carrot tail. None the less we got her home today. And now what every one really wants the pictures.

    As for the set up I got a zillo 20L critter cage with sliding screen top. And added the zoo med under tank heater for a 10-20 gallon tank.




    For easy as this is our first leo I went with the exo Terra 20L sand mat. Eventually I think I'm going to switch to a bio active setup from the bio dude but for now this is how we are going


    Grabbed a large cork tree thingy for the hot side. Probably change this soon to another exo Terra hut to keep with the desert brown theme but they didn't have a regular one at the store. So probably order one from Amazon.


    Got an exo Terra reptile den for the cool hide. Love this thing



    She loves it already too


    Added the exo Terra gecko cave with some spagnuim moss for the humid hide in the middle but little closer to heat mat


    Then some fake cactus and water dish for added decoration.

    I know I'll probably get yelled at but I'm hoping to be able to get another female in here in a couple weeks for my son. Do you guys think my set up is good enough for that? I was thinking of getting some of those slate pieces and making another hide or 2 by laying then across the den

    what are the temps? I remember I got a zoo med 10-20 gallon heat mat and it would not keep it warm enough, I had to return it and get a 30-40 which is the perfect size for my terrarium. she is a beautiful leo though! and I love your tank.

    What a gorgeous leo!

    For a 20 long, I strongly recommend an 11 x 17 inch Ultratherm heat mat. It will not be overkill. The more warm floor a leo has, the more active that leo will be. Then leo will not need to hug a small heat mat for belly warmth.

    The Bean Farm (877-708-5882) has 11 x 17s in stock right now. Last I checked they cost $26. Ultratherms are well worth that price.

    Well my thermometer/ hydrometer came in already plus I cut off the bottom of the cork round so she will be able to actually touch the sand mat and heat pad instead of being in the cork. Figured that would let her absorb more warmth. So I used the price and edge it up again the humid hide to make kinda another hide if she likes. Plus you can see the probe I left kinds hanging in the middle some I will have the thermostat probe on the hot side when that comes in.


    Also added the small exo Terra water dish to put in her mealworms that I dusted with reptivite plus D3


    And here is where that half sits right now temp wise
