    Hey there everyone!

    yesterday i got my new Panther Gecko.
    i'v had geckos in the past just not this kind. iv got the basic setup with paper towel as hes only 6 months old, and i'm wondering if anyone has any advice/tips on owning/the care of these amazing little guys!
    hes in a 15 gallon tank with a warm and cool hide, water dish, cal dish, fake plants, UTH and red nighttime light, hot spots between 85-90f and humidity is at 60%.
    as of this week ill be starting to gather the stuff together to start making a natural viv and id like people opinions/pictures of what they have done for theirs. Also what kind of substrate/plants or ideas!
    Any help/advice is greatly appreceated.
    Thanks in advance!

    you might check the caresheet subforum. I found this there, and also this with just a cursory glance. there may be others.

    as for as setting up a natural viv and what kinds of plants substrate, check the Naturalistic Vivarium and DIY subforums. you'll find there is a TON of information on this site if you look. also, note that there are several ways to set up a natural tank, and no "one true way" exists. you'll have lots of choices to make and things to try.

    thank you so much!

    also since hes been home, hes only been in his cool hide and only ate once, (6 meals,dusted.)
    hes had regular misting and a bowl of meal all the time in his tank..
    i hope hes ok, i know it can take some time for him to adjust to his new home.

    The hotspot sounds a little warm. Mine doesn't go over 85F, and on average is more around 82F.

    I like Dracaena for live plants, I've found them pretty bullet proof. I use pothos, snake plant as well as a random assortment of others. Those 3 do really well though.

    Welcome to GU! And congrats on your new Pictus Gecko. It sounds like you have everything in place for your new pet to thrive. I personally think that the Pictus gecko is a lot more fun to watch than the more common Leopard Gecko!
