Beautiful geckos! QQ I love them all, so pretty, and the tanks are amazing too! My favorite is actually your gargoyle gecko, he's absolutely beautiful. I want a gargoyle sometime soon, but for now I'm sticking with my leopard gecko and side-blotched lizard 'till I get a bit more experienced with reptiles.

Anything over 80 F or 26C would be stressful and dangerous for them.

You're not using sand with your gecko right?

Also, are you calcium dusting and gut loading your crickets? I know that crickets should never the the sold part of a crested's diet because they do need their CGD. (Crested gecko diet by repashy)

I also get my decor for my tanks at craft stores, much cheaper.
Problem is I don't have space to put any sort of tank for a gecko. My fish tanks take too much space. I'm using paper towel as substrate. He eats cgd easily and crickets are dusted. Dry cat food, cricket gut load like a light brown powder and lettuce are given to crickets. I don't believe anything other than cgd were fed to him before I got the gecko. The breeder is a responsible person that's not into it for the money. I've used dollar store fake plants as decor.

I did look into leopard geckos but I prefer to avoid keeping live feeder insects 247. They're very nice animals too.

That's good to hear :)

Yeah, I love leos, but having live bugs around really creeps me out

Beautiful geckos rmarkham! I also love your tanks. Where did you buy those horizontal branches with the suction cups?

I have two Crested Geckos. They are my favorite gecko species.

First is Taji, my chunky boy. He weighs in at 60 grams! He is 6 years old. I've had him for 3 years. He lives in a large 18x18x24 enclosure.



My newest addition is a baby/juvenile from Petco. Although it is still too early to identify the gender, I've been referring the little one as a female. She weighs in at only 10 grams. She currently lives in a 5.5 gallon enclosure.

You mean the bamboo things? I got them on Pangea's store, I love that forum and have the same username over there. http://www.pangeareptile.com/store/f...mboo-bars.html

Taji is beautiful! My largest as of right now is Hubert who is hovering at around 50g, I can't wait for my leachie to catch up!

Your new gal is so adorable in that picture.
