    In all my research about it, I have never once heard that tile can be detrimental to a gecko's well being. Perhaps Elizabeth and Aliza could comment further here as well as some of the other...

    Good choice getting the DHP bulb! What size is your terrarium? I would recommend getting some slate rocks either at your local landscaping store or from Amazon. Make sure to wash them thoroughly...

    I have the same Zilla rock lair that I use as my gecko's moist hide. We have a warm dry hide with no bottom placed on textured tile slightly on an angle right up against the glass on the warm side. ...

    I would leave it in there. You never know if they move around and use different hides during the day when you are not there or the middle of the night. The amount of time we actually are watching...

    Those red light bulbs for heat are not very great. Your best bet is a Deep Heat Projector bulb from Arcadia on a thermostat positioned above a flat slate rock with a temperature probe on the rock. ...

    As far as the sex of the gecko goes, it is very hard to determine that until they are about 6 months old (or older.) I cannot tell from the pictures whether Leonardo is a boy or not.

    It would only matter inasmuch how far away the light bulb ends up being from the target point. If the deep dome ends up having the bulb quite a bit farther away than 12" it may not allow enough UV...
