 Crested Gecko tank

Just finished putting together the tank for the Crested Gecko that will be getting here on Thurs (so I have a day or so to change anything).

I’ll post some pictures of it, I’d love feedback. Also, I’m sorry if the photos aren’t the best, I had to use my iPod because there weren’t any charged batteries and I want to go to bed :o

Anyways, here’s the tank (it’s an 18x18x18 Exo Terra)





PS, just thought I’d say that there are 2 live Pothos towards the back (you probably can’t see them) and the background is a ZooMed precut 18x18 slab of cork (I think it adds a whole new dimension to the tank).

Hey, looks like a really cool setup -- I am anxious to see how the geckos look in it. Post a picture or two?

It’s quite small, only 2.5-3 months old. I have a few decent pics I have of it.

It was pretty cute because when I woke up this morning I noticed a few smudges next to the CGD dish (one in the general shape of a gecko foot) so I think it stepped in it last night. I assume it ate some too. I’ll try to look for poop, but I’m not sure if it goes to the bathroom on the ground or on leaves or something. :o

Anyways, here’s some pics of the gecko. I’m thinking of naming it Flare if it’s a guy, and Flarette if it’s a girl.

This first pic if of when I first let it out of the deli cup. She crawled across my fingers and onto the leaf. :D



This next one is about an hour later, when it finally moved a little bit onto a different leaf.



This last one is where I found her/him this morning. I think she was sleeping, it’s hard to tell since they don’t have eyelids. :3
