BAD NEWS for me! I noticed today I had dead leaves on the botton of a plant I have in the tank. (my tokay is ver pale looking =( CRAP) Plus, I have a crapload of the mits on a sponge I use to block off a hole in the fountain (to keep crickets from drowning so much) I am hoping my gecko is ok>I never had this before! I took the fountain and plants out...I am going to try to catch my gecko and put him in a holding bucket (I have a temp guage there, but no humidity guage) I will put a log in there with a lanp 9the log was not in his tank...it is an extra one I had) QUESTIONS: Do you think the mites are on my gecko? (spider mites I think) How long is best to keep him in holding bucket (size of 10 gallon)~what is safe for him? Will cleaning the tank get rid of the mites? Will baking the logs and driftwood...everything but fountain and plants...make that safe? I think that the rest of the plnats are ok. I wont put the plants back in until I am sure though. Is there anything else I could do? How will I know if the mites got to my tokay? PLEASE HELP!
