    Default Best species for me


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi everyone!
    I'm new to the forum and am having trouble on deciding between my first gecko. The species I am interested in are
    -Cresteds
    -Gargs
    -Giant Days
    -Mournings
    I know this is a pretty scattered list lol.
    I would prefer to feed primarily MRP with the occasional insect.
    Which of these geckos has been the most enjoyable to care for as well as the easiest?
    I hear many people talk about how high maintenance day geckos are. Is this true or just said to discourage newbies?
    All help is greatly appreciated

    I would recommend going with either a crested gecko or garg. They don't need extra heat, don't need extra light (unless you have plants), don't have to eat crickets often, can be handled.

    Giant day gecko: needs a pretty large enclosure, needs a basking light and either UVB or enough calcium and D3 to provide for its needs, can't be handled

    mourning gecko: can't be handled, probably needs crickets more than other species above, will reproduce and you may get overrun.
