    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...

    He, actually. ;) Sorry I couldn't reply until this morning. I have the Zilla 8.5" reflector dome that I have the light bulb in. It sits on top of a sliding wire mesh top. Believe it or not,...

    This is my opinion only. Hopefully Elizabeth Freer can confirm if it is sound.

    I don't think it would do any harm leaving your current light on, until you get the compact fluorescent Zoo Med...

    Thanks for the mention Elizabeth. Yes, I do use the Zoo Med ReptiSun Mini-compact fluorescent bulb in my 20 Long enclosure. As long as you have about 10-12" area between your gecko and the bulb it...

    Definitely give it a shot. Don't forget to follow Arcadia's recommendations of placement of the probe on the slate below the DHP. Having slightly elevated humidity in the Winter is not a bad thing....

    Congratulations to you for giving that poor Gecko a better home! I would not say what you are proposing is entirely overkill. However I wouldn't add an extra Ceramic bulb in the middle. Personally...

    Good tips by both of those experienced members. I agree with them both completely! When we first got our gecko he was a juvenile and he hid a lot more. Now that he is closer to 14 months he is...

    Sometimes when they are ovulating they will lose their appetite though I would have thought yours is too young for that yet. I am however, not very familiar with female geckos so i will let the...

    A little hard to be 100% certain with that picture, but I would characterize your gecko as being maybe a "little plump" but not dangerously overweight or anything. He looks healthy.

    Elizabeth, I may be wrong. But in that picture it looks to me that Yuzu is flattened down absorbing some belly heat. You can see the hind legs slightly splayed out. I suspect that may account for...

    Ah! My mistake. I apologize!

    It would be like us trying to wake up and eat in the middle of the night. While it can be done. It's not ideal.

    I think you getting the variety pack is a much better idea. Also, an adult Leo will not want to (and probably should not) be eating every day. Every 2-3 days is our norm as ours simply will not eat...
