    Fluker's has been updating the interior coating of their domes to polished anodized aluminum. That may be the same aluminum finish that's proven superior for maximum light, heat, and UVB output.

    Zoo Med ReptiSun UVB T8 tubes need replacing annually. They may provide adequate UVB longer than that, but the only way to tell is with a Solarmeter 6.5R (cost = $200-$250). Zoo Med manufactures one of the best UVB bubs/tubes on the market! I don't know the life of Zoo Med's compact fluorescents. Zoo Med customer service: 888-496-6633.

    I can't recall her gait 7 months ago nor can I find videos anywhere of it . Given that she's 5 years old should I follow the 126 schedule instead?

Then my breeder informed me that she switched to Repashy calcium plus for all her geckos and so I just bought that next.

    Let's use Schedule 125 with it's more frequent supplementation until Asia's gait is normal. Have you all those Zoo Med supplements now?

    When her gait is normal, then switch over to Schedule 126. Perhaps she'll be ready for Schedule 156 then.

    Zoo Med's compact fluorescent bulbs are also only good for about a year.

    I decided to switch back to the 75 watt basking bulb. I’ve got it dimmed to where it’s just as bright as the 15 watt light but also where it won’t get the ambient temps too high. The ambient temps on the warm side went down to 76 degrees when I used the 15 watt and I just feel that the low 80s would be better.

    wow im late to the party lol. as far as the repashy goes i think its ok stuff for a healthy pet gecko, im not so sure about for breeding females tho. I think sticking with what @Elizabeth Freer said is a good idea atleast until the geckos as normal as it can get.

    I'm here to update on my ground heating. I'm sort of restricted to only using Amazon as my online source to buy supplies for my animals and they had run out of stock of the Ultratherm heat mat so I decided to go for the Wuhostam 20 watt heating pad (16.53"X11").

    I hope this heat mat does a good job keeping Asia warm. (I just saw her pic in your re-naming thread. )

    How about posting another video on the stairs about 2 weeks after you began her MBD treatment? I don't want you to stress her out. I am totally interested in how she's coming along.

    The Jump start thermostat seems to be fluctuating quite a bit with the new heat pad. I have it set to 90 degrees but according to the probe the heat mat goes on for another 4-6 degrees after the thermostat says it has turned off the heat. Then the temperature goes down to 86 once the heat pad finally begins to cool down. I just ordered a new thermostat to see if that will solve the fluctuating heat but I'll post pictures of Asia 2 weeks later no problem .
