    I expect a couple of Lygodactylus williamsi.

    I studied this forum and decided that the basic formula of nutrition should look like this:
    Monday: insects + Repashy Calcium plus.
    Wednesday: REPASHY Crested Gecko MRP (or Pangea Fruit Mix ™ With Insects Complete Gecko Diet) What is best to use?
    Friday: insects + Repashy Calcium plus.
    Saturday: REPASHY Crested Gecko MRP (or Pangea Fruit Mix ™ With Insects Complete Gecko Diet)
    I beg you to look at the menu, which I made and comment.
    If there are comments, please write the full replacement name. This will help me to make the right order.
    Thank you, best regards, Max.
    Hello Max ~

    Your L. williamsi menu seems reasonable to me, especially if you use Zoo Med's Reptisun 5.0 UVB bulb in addition to the low vitamin D3 levels Repashy's Calcium Plus multivitamins provides. Even if you decide NOT to use UVB, I think your geckos will be covered by lightly dusted insects @ 2 feedings per week + Pangea Complete Diets @ 2 other feedings per week.

    I feed Pangea Fruit Mix ™ With Insects Complete Gecko Diet to my crested gecko. I think it is a great product. I recommend 2 ounce packages of 2 other Pangea diets so you can rotate them.

    1. 2 ounce package of Pangea Fruit Mix ™ With Insects Complete Gecko Diet (as you mention)


    2. + 2 ounce package of Pangea Fruit Mix Papaya Complete Gecko Diet


    3. + 2 ounce package of Pangea Fruit Mix Watermelon Mango Complete Gecko Diet


    Pangea Complete Gecko Diets expire, so don't stock up!

    I have never used REPASHY Crested Gecko MRP.

    Max ~ This can be easily adapted to your 12 x 12 x 18 inch enclosure.

    Thank. Interesting video.
    Like this, I made a terrarium for my Lepidodactylus lugubris. Only potted plants.
    I also have a layer of coconut substrate and then moss. I think it helps maintain humidity.

    It does help maintain humidity, Max. When one waters Hydroton now and then, that promotes humidity without having the coconut substrate or dirt get soggy.

    Potted plants work nicely too.

    Be sure to provide many hiding places. These geckos like thick cover!

    These 3 layers work well:
    • Bottom layer: Hydroton clay culture marbles or something similar
    • 2nd layer: some fabric like weed blocker cloth that lets water pass through to the bottom layer
    • Top layer: Eco Earth's coco fiber (that's not nutritious enough for most plants) or a good potting soil

    Is Sansevieria (snake plant) sold in the Ukraine?

    It is very hardy and prefers sandy soil. I let mine dry out between watering. That takes about 3 weeks.

    Everything is so arranged with me. Pebbles, cloth, coconut, moss.
    Sansevieria is for sale. Be sure to be in a terrarium with Lygodactylus williamsi.
