i dont ever think my brother would make a good pet owner if the animal isnt a cat or a dog. he's a "its just a (insert animal)" person. he thinks im crzy for having 4 betta and he thinks im even crazier for getting a scale to weight my crestie. lol he said that a physical/visual inspection is sufficient to determine a lizard's weight ie gain or loss. he thinks just getting a scale is overboard even when the crested doesnt even need the full 9 yards for traditional reptile equipement others need.
i dont think i'll talk animals with him (aside from dogs and cats), he's too dense/ignorant to basic equipement for any sort of animal.
im also setting up a DIY cricket box. the tiny KK with cricket channels is priced at $19 at a LPS/LRS. i just got a plastic container, clear plastic tube, electric tape and crafting mesh to build it. i'll drill holes for ventilation and a large one to put the tube in. im also looking for PVC tubing to make a reusable hiding spot for the gecko. got one thats 1' interior but its nearly the width of the crestie's head atm.
