    Default Looking for gecko ideas


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have a large paludarium with lots of plants, water, humidity, branches, hide-outs, etc. All I have in there for geckos are Mourning geckos. I would like to add another species of about the same size. I thought about day geckos, but I wonder if they are too territorial. Any suggestions for an easy going, small, tropical gecko species?

    You could get brown or green anoles and day geckos aren’t that territorial.
    How big is the paludarium?

    day geckos can be and often are VERY territorial. I would not use them in a community system.

    4' x 8' x 6' high. Water is about 2' deep at the deepest.
    There is room for lots of geckos, but I still need some degree of compatibility. If I could add a small species of Day gecko, that would be nice. House geckos would probably be ok- but so would something a bit more uncommon.

    Look into indo pacific or mediterranean house gekos. Btw Aren't you the same herpin man as on caudata.org?

    Cloppy, I sort of like the flat tailed house gecko, Hemidactylus platyurus. My biggest concern would be possible parasite transmission from the wc geckos to my mourning geckos. If I did that, I would probably try to establish them in a separate enclosure, and introduce the offspring into the paludarium instead. But, my first choice would be something a bit more colorful and less common than house geckos, but in the same size category.
    And yes, I am also the Herpin man on caudata.
