    Zoo Med is usually a decent brand - I would think this would work very well! Replace the uvb every 6 months.

    I think that looks really good! You have a nice amount of hides and foliage.

    As long as she eats 3x per week, she'll be getting those important supplements until ~ February 2.:

    • Wednesday ~ Zoo Med'd Repti Calcium without D3 (plain)
    • Friday ~ Zoo Med's Reptivite without D3

    Please post video updates on January 13th.

    This is pre-Schedule 156:

    Did you see this customer review about Zoo Med's Naturalistic Terrarium Hood, 12-Inch? Zoo Med replies:
    "This hood is best for low-wattage lights such as compact fluorescents, 8-inch LED plant lights, or low wattage incandescent bulbs (stick to 25 watts or less for safety.) For a 50 watt night heat light, use a lamp dome instead - those are made for heat. Leopard geckos do best with heat mats. If you need extra heat (cold room syndrome) a dome with a CHE is good."

    What I have in mind is a 5.5 inch or 8.5 inch diameter "lamp dome". I think it's best if Zoo Med ReptiSun's mini-compact 10.0 UVB bulb shines on only part of Mae's enclosure. That way she can be out and about and still dodge UVB rays when she feels like it. Keep Mae's UVB above the warm end.

    How is Mae doing these days? In the intervening weeks since you posted, how have you managed Mae's feedings and supplements?

    Please share a current video.

    Does she look ready to switch over to UVB?

    Mae's doing good, right now she gets excited for food but looses interest unless her food is moving without my tweezers which isn't too good of a thing when I'm feeding dubia roaches, they're experts at choosing a place to stay and standing still LOL. I have gotten the Zoomed naturalistic terrarium hood and reptisun mini compact 10.0 bulb and have added it to her enclosure already. I think the new way I setup her tank is working because she was sleeping under the Uvb all day today, her entire body out of her hide too! I've been gutloading her roaches, crickets and superworms with Mazuri Better Bug and the mealworms with Mazuri hi calcium gutloading diet. I'll be sure to get a video of her walking to you soon. I also have decided to mist her tank until it's up to 50% on a digital hygrometer every night to imitate the humidity increase in her natural habitat. She hides while I'm spraying down her cage but after I'm done she comes out to lick the water off of the decor.

    Thanks, Digs!

    Mae's home looks really nice. About how long each day is she hanging out underneath her ReptiSun UVB? Did it take a while for her to get used to it?

    Thanks! yes it took her a couple of days to finally expose her full body in the light. Her favorite place to hide now is in between the two large logs that are stacked on the right side.

    Mae now likes to come out under the UVB light at 4PM to explore. I don't know exactly how long she stays out under the light since I typically have to go to work at this time.
