    Do you think 50 watts of DHP heat diffusing from an 8.5 inch dome fixture would damage the plastic "cross" on top of the Exo Terra screen? An 8.5 inch Fluker's dome would only overlap 1/2 inch all around. That 1/2 inch is actually how much the dome's rim measures.

    My 2 newest 8.5 inch domes are coated inside with aluminum-like finish. They may reflect better than white paint.

    It seems like the temps that plastic beam and rim might reach are well below the melting range of plastic. I'm curious too.

    Sometimes that happens, Gutler. I'm happy you were able to remove the stuck part.

    Please keep a soft bristled toothbrush in Iggy's first aid kit in case that ever happens again. Recently I've used a soft bristled toothbrush to safely remove stuck toe shed on some 5-10 gram geckos.

    Method #5 -- Soft Bristled Toothbrush Assist -- This even works on geckos with much smaller toes than leopard geckos.
    Always give your gecko a head start with a humidity box/sauna. First place your gecko in a humidity box for an hour or so. Then place that gecko on a solid surface like a countertop. Apply gentle pressure on the gecko's toes with a soft bristled toothbrush and dry & wet q-tips. Gently sweep the toothbrush and the q-tips away from the toes.

    Hold smaller geckos between your fingers and thumb in a gently closed fist with either their head or their tail sticking out. Gently work on toes against your fingers or your thumb. Follow above suggestions.

    Yes, it will. What generally happens is that I get free 12 x 12 inch egg flats from a local restaurant. For the first time ever I ordered 70 egg flats from TSK Supply in Utah. I keep my dubia colony in a 10 gallon with a sliding screen top. I only occasionally feed dubia to my leo. Usually my leo Cha eats crickets.

    TSK Supply: 801-794-2247, Click: UniHeat Products - TSK Supply
    [UniHeat Heat Packs, bulk egg flats (35 & 70 count), Cryopak Phase 22's, et cetera

    Care & Breeding of Feeders: crickets, Blaptica dubia, hornworms, & silkworms


    PS:
    I've got 2 slate cheese trays on the way. I'm wondering whether we should be sealing our leo's slate since slate is porous.
