    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.

    I agree with Elizabeth. Erring on the side of caution is never a bad thing. As long as you are following the...

    As long as you place the DHP above a larger slate rock, it will help to heat up the enclosure area. That is what I use for overhead heating and on a thermostat to regulate day/night temps. I also...

    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...

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

    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...

    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.
