    IMO, a 20 long would benefit from a UTH and overhead heat. I've tried all three different ways with my gecko (just light, UTH and light, and just UTH), and I found she was much, much less active with...

    There's some very good evidence to suggest that leopard geckos can't convert beta carotene to vitamin A. I talked to one person who had used Herptivite and their gecko developed an ulcer on its lip...

    I'm not sure about scheduling, but just as a side note, make sure you're providing the feeders with something high in vitamin A, since neither of your products contain any.

    No problem. Again, everyone has their own opinions on most things, so remember that it comes down to personal preference, and you can form your own too. Good luck, and if you have any more questions,...

    Yes, they're both all-in-one supplements that contain everything the gecko needs. Whichever you get, use according to the label instructions.

    Belly heat is important for digestion, yes, but, IMO,...

    Geckos need much more than just calcium. Vitamin D3, for example, is what allows their bodies to actually use calcium. They also need different nutrients like vitamin A, potassium, etc. There are...

    What are the temps during the day? And is the bulb turned off at night?

    The humid hide really should be left in 24/7. They don't use it just for shedding, but also for hydration. I'd really...

    In what way is she sick, exactly? There are different illnesses that need to be treated differently, so "sick" doesn't really give us any idea on what's actually wrong with her. Pics of her would be...

    Cat food? I'd be wary of that. Most cat food, unless it's high-end organic stuff, has a bunch of crap in it. I won't even feed most cat food to my cats, let alone would I want it going to a reptile. ...

    A picture would be more useful, since body shape and weight varies from gecko to gecko.

    Mealworms are certainly more convenient for large breeding operations, but the reason they put weight fast on juvies is that they're higher in fat than some other feeders. Whether that's good or not...

    Paper towels make a fine temporary substrate. I'm not as anti-sand as most people, but it's not something I'd suggest for young geckos or for someone without a lot of knowledge and experience with...

    What Mardy said is correct. However, from what I've read, laying on top of each other can be a sign of dominance and something on which an eye should be kept. But it might just be because it's the...

    It says so right on the directions not to use them on plastic. If they're hooked up to something to control them, it's safer, but no guarantee.

    Dunno about the worms. Don't feed them.

    I would go with the 20 long for now. It'll be easier to keep an eye on eating and pooping in a smaller enclosure. Also, UTHs shouldn't be used on plastic.

    I would separate her. Just because they're females, that doesn't mean they get along. Leopard geckos are solitary creatures and don't like being kept together. Some will tolerate it, and some won't....

    I was wondering about that too. I think mealworms come with some kind of stuff in the container that looks kind of like sawdust, right? I assumed that's what the OP meant.

    6" is small for an adult leopard gecko, especially a male. That's a little disconcerting. Pictures really would be helpful. And a 10 gallon is also rather small for an adult leopard gecko. It's...
