thank you Kfyrman and Willow, i'll leave the stump like that. i'll need to add some blocks at the base as it swivels (1 robertson screw holding stump to slate plate).

id love to use the cocoa husk all the time though impaction at early stages doesnt sound appealing. i like the fact that i need to change the cocoa husk every 1-2 months, easy to maintain for the most part. i have no real issues with paper towel aside from keeping a constant supply of it for my gecko. i have a good suppply of it given i have only 1 gecko. if i had multiple geckoes then it would go by much faster.

i did most of the work on my terrarium today. didnt have time to deal with foliage. i had to toss the biggest branch out. i had suspected it was crawling with termites or some insect, i was right. the other 2 were fine. i made a platform but it took me some time 1-2 hrs. i took 2 2x4 wood and spilt them into 4 legs and 6 ply wood top board. its around 6 inches tall 7x3 inches wide. the larger one for the full size is 9x4 3/4 inches. i can put food on it for the gecko or leave it as a resting spot. i need to sterilze the platform and seal all metal areas with silicone. i also made to compressed wood stop blocks to make sure the stump wont rotate. i'll need to look for good foliage on the weekend.

It's going to be lovely. :) Climbing places other than glass are very good for cresties. And I'm sure he'll appreciate all the cover!

thank you PM, i was a bit worried there woudnt be enough branches. i'll need to find a bunch of fake leaves now for all those branches.

i have a question before i a 3rd time to post
do i need to blunt the broken tips of the stump branches? you can cut the skin by rubbubg it but it may be possible if he jumps onto them. it may not hurt juvies but maybe adult ones are more susptible.
