How did this turn out? Hubby and me want to make a really natural environment for our new gecko, so I have been looking for ideas, but nobody seems to say how everything ends up. Thanks. I bet it looks great.

So I finally received an email from the website allowing me to retrieve my account and update this post. Since I started I changed the vivarium to accommodate tropical arboreal geckos, day geckos were the main thing in mind. I just have the waterfall to finish then I can finish planting and call it done

looks nice, although i can tell you that over here, most people build their backall with many crevices, as it is said that the geckos feel more secure with their body pressed between those crevices, like this:

Well, seeing as I haven't updated this thread in over 2 years, I figured I might as well. I ended up going a different route with what I was putting in, I decided that with the height of the tank, I wanted to put arboreal geckos in instead of terrestrial. I went with Mourning Geckos (Lepidodactylus lugubris), I've had to tank running for almost 2 and a half years, I introduced the Mourning geckos around 9 months ago, a total of 4. I've had sightings of 2 separate babies thus far. The tank has a temperature gradient of 88-70 Fahrenheit. There is a water feature and a misting system to keep the humidity up. There is also a T5 light fixture along with a incandescent light to help the plants.20150803_180616.jpg20170511_215120.jpg

Because heat rises naturally, it's important to locate vent(s) LOW down on the cool end/side & HIGH up on the opposite warm end/side.
