    Welcome aboard, loachlady! Both mourning geckos & crested geckos do well with misting once daily in the evenings. Mourning geckos are pretty small when fully grown. Crested geckos are significantly larger. I look forward to seeing your pics.

    Klemmeri / Neon Day Gecko set up request

    PS: It's MUCH easier to prevent Floppy Tail Syndrome in Phelsuma than to correct it. I don't think Floppy Tail can be corrected. I suggest changing the bamboo against the enclosure's back wall. Place it an an angle instead of perpendicular to the ground.

    Klemmeri / Neon Day Gecko set up request

    Hi Benfry89 ~ I recommend diagonal instead of vertical basking sites like some of your current bamboo. It's been said that vertical bamboo "encourages" flop tail in Phelsuma. I wonder whether Zoo Med still makes an individual enclosure misting unit called Zoo Med Habba Mist -- Automatic Misting...

    Humidity and temperature setup

    Pour some water in a couple locations. The water "spreads out" as it's absorbed by the hy droton. Use something like a large diameter PVC tube, a "funnel" of sorts, to direct this water through the soil right into the hy droton. Otherwise, the soil will become soggy. I don't think soggy soil is...

    Humidity and temperature setup

    Hi Katillia ~ Welcome to Geckos Unlimited! Have you tried literally "watering" your hy droton culture balls directly every so often? Not excessively so, just the "right amount"? 😉 For instance by adding a cup or so of water hy droton absorbs water, thereby evening out humidity throughout the...
