    Default Pictus Gecko Setu


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey I was planning on getting another gecko and after doing some research have decided on the Pictus/Panther gecko, but I wanted to know if these items would be enough to reasonably care for one.

    I'm sorry no one has replied. I have never kept Pictus/Panther geckos.

    Instead of TheBiodude Fluker’s 10oz. Hand Mister I strongly recommend Spraymaster mister. Spraymaster comes in a 32 ounce size. It is warrantied for 5 years.! If the mister fails, Spraymaster can replace that separately.

    I don't spot any powdered supplements on your list. I use and recommend Zoo Med's supplements:
    • Zoo Med's Repti Calcium WITH D3
    • Zoo Med's Repti Calcium withOUT D3 (or plain calcium carbonate by NOW) -- Plain calcium NEVER expires.

    • Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins withOUT D3


    If you watch this entire video, you'll see that Dr. Stahl recommends Zoo Med supplements, because Reptivite contains pre-formed vitamin A (retinol). For link 159 click: Q & A with Scott Stahl, DVM -- June 2019 Herpeton Conference (video by Brian Kusko -- Triple B TV Episode 194)


    PS:

    If Repashy's Superfood Calcium Plus is an all-in-one multivitamin, I prefer to keep gecko and insect food and supplements separate.

    Thank you for the feedback and I’ll look into that and for the powdered supplement the Repashy has both vitamins and calcium needed for a gecko and I just didn’t know if a Pictus gecko needed supplements without vitamins and with vitamins.

    You're welcome.

    Does Repashy's Superfood Calcium Plus contain protein, fat, et cetera? If so, how much of each? Please link it.

    I use an insect food similar to Pro Gutload's Insect Dry Diet for my crickets and dubia. Then I powder (or not) the insects prior to feeding them off. That way it's easier to tweak the amount of the gecko's supplements.

    Will you need day and night heating? If so, a ceramic heat emitting bulb on a thermostat is a good choice. Ceramic heat emitters produce heat, but no visible light. However, inexpensive thermostats have only one setting.

    The light isn't necessary for the gecko but many recommend using a 50w-85w buld to regulate heat and for a nice basking spit as for linking I din't know exactly how to do that.

    • To link anything, find the exact product on a reliable website like Repashy's.
    • See whether the ingredients are listed.
    • If so, copy the URL that's shown above.
    • Then paste that URL into your post right here.
    • /\ Does that make sense?

    Thanks both of you! I think I got that down. The website said that the Rephasy Calcium Plus contain vitamins, calcium, protein and fat, but the protein and fat are only 2%.

    Thank you for the wonderful information! I think that what I have should be good enough for my gecko to sustain itself. I just have a few question about some of the things in the article. Two of them had put calcium dishes in for breeding females, would I need that for a male or non breeding female? Also can thermostats regulate Lamp temperatures?
