    Default Sphaerodactylus argus


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello!!

    Finally the last one from Hamm, Sphaerodactylus argus

    Not the most stricking colour but still a very nice species and pretty fast also!!

    Male from hexentanz


    Female from Dendrophel






    I can see an egg in the female. Rather timid species compare with the 2 others I got but very nice!!

    Cheers

    Nice! Especially the male!

    Give them sometime, they will get used to you, esp the female.

    Yann, I'm contemplating picking up two pairs of these guys. and I figured I could ask you for a little insight towards the species before I decide on getting them. Could you by chance tell me how you have them set up? Temp, humidity, enclosure size and feeding if you don't mind. You've had such a huge amount of success with all these species, and I figured I should ask one of the better keepers.

    Hi!!

    Just make sure to keep them in pairs only, 1.1 together, they have high level of agressivity towards conspecific of same sex.

    I keep my pair in a 20cm cube with lots of bark pieces.
    I mist once in a while...(should be around 60%)
    I always leave a small cap of water.
    (for argus)

    Otherwise the others are in bigger tanks 30 cube or even 60-45-45 (2 species together)
    With these I mist everynight

    Feeding 2-3 times a week.

    I can only encourage you to check Zwerggeckos.com
    Most of mine are coming from Dennis, and basically all I know about them I found it there!!
    Cheers
