    Is synthetic grass lawn good as substrate for the terrarium and coconut fiber good as substrate for the den in the "cold zone"?

    For the substrate I recommend paper towel, slate, or textured ceramic tile. Reptile carpet is difficult to keep clean. Leos get their teeth and claws stuck in the carpet too.

    For the warm humid hide I recommend paper towel strips, sphagnum moss, or Eco Earth's coco fiber.

    Since your leo is brand new, please start a husbandry thread right here for many of your questions: http://www.geckosunlimited.com/commu...g-and-heating/

    Only if there are housing or heating questions, or topics not covered in the other subforums. This thread is perfectly okay right here.

    Having a new gecko doesn't make it mandatory to start a husbandry thread. Why assume the owners needs help because it's new? It can wait until there are some questions.

    I know for sure that coconut fiber should work perfectly, and so should wood or paper towels/newspapers. I've never actually heard anybody using fake grass as substrate; but, I guess it should be fine as well. First of all, the majority of reptiles love green, especially when it's a strong color. Also, it should be easy to clean and therefore easy to maintain a reptile's health condition.
