    Default Ground dwelling geckos for large vivarium?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I need suggestions for small terrestrial (3"-4") geckos that would thrive in a humid planted environment.

    Ocelot gecko (Paroedura pictus) might be worth investigating. Add some Ghost wood or Bamboo and many day geckos would work. Tell us more about your setup.

    It's a large, 4' x'8' x 6' planted vivarium. Temps run from the mid 70's to low 80's. Humidity runs 60-90%. All I have in there are Mourning geckos, and a small pond with some fish. I think pictus are too big, and could eat Mourning geckos.

    is that why you want a terrestrial species? so they don't eat the mourning geckos?

    That, and there really is nothing at ground level except plants. I am trying to plan a community set up.

    I still have just the Mourning geckos in the enclosure. However I do have a small group of Parodoera vazimba that, when they are a bit larger, I plan on introducing.
