    From the conversations I have had with the folks at Arcadia, if your enclosure is 12" high, the 50 Watt should be sufficient. I myself use a 50 watt for my 20 Gallon long enclosure and with a few...

    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...

    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. ...

    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.
