    Default Fruit fly base?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Greetings,
    I have been keeping dart frogs for awhile now, and was considering filling an empty tank with some or kind of creature, and geckos caught my eye. I love Phelsuma klemmeri but they are a little out of my price range for a first gecko...

    I was wondering if there were any other species that could have a base of fruit flies for their diet? I have tons of cultures for my dart frogs that I dust with vitamins for feeding. I just don't really want to deal with crickets... but like geckos.

    Thanks
    Justin

    Gonatodes possible but most adult geckos shouldn't be sustained totally on fruitfies. The good thing with day geckos though is you can do fruitflies and babyfood.

    Phelsuma klemmeri are great, but expensive, and although they were my first day gecko, I have had a decade or so with keeping geckos previously, over 20 species.
    You should look into Laticuada, Quads, or Lineata for a small day gecko, that is attractive. They are just as beautiful, but cheaper. They can be fed fruit flies, not as a stable diet, but as a snack.

    good luck
