    Question Healthy vivarium?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello all! I havenít seen any videos or articles on how to check on the health of a vivarium. What signs should I look for? What are the good signs and bad signs? Could you guys help me out? F8BCD5B8-5304-4BFC-9041-3924512EFD4C.jpg

    You're almost "there", Spleekly! You've got a well-planted enclosure with textured climbing vines! Consider adding a second vine or twisting another vine around the vine you already have.

    Instead of a ground-level coconut hide, I recommend a fat bamboo tube or a cork bark tunnel leaning diagonally against the glass. That's my crestie's sleeping "bag" every single night!

    Reptile shows are often good sources for cork bark.

    Does your gecko have ~4-6 ounce water dish?

    Some folks use magnetic feeding ledges. I just fill a plastic pot with hydroton (clay culture marbles) & cover that with porous weed block cloth. I place my crestie's feeding dish on top of the week block cloth. Now and then I spray the hydroton.

    Thank you! I took my friend who breeds geckos to go shopping for supplies with me. He told me to get the coconut hide which I’ve discovered has been pretty useless T-T

    You're welcome, Spleekly!

    Just saying . . . . . . that my crestie George doesn't mind a snug fit. George enters his bamboo tube head first. However he exits butt first.
