    I'm confused? What have I done? :confused: I'm not good at english, sorry... I wrote 'they don't need the same standard os decorations', I meant that the millipedes not need as much decorations in a high terrarium. In the context: If i finish the bottom first, then I can get an millipede, but I need to finish both the bottom and the top before I would like to get crested geckos, just for my own terrarium :)

    I would like to bought it. Have seen a nice one in the shop ;) But I have a question about plants... I don't wanna get real plants in the tank, because of the risk of parasites, but I would like to hear if I can buy a false plant from the supermarket? I'm not afraid of using this, because they're made for terrariums... but if I buy a false plant in a supermarket or IKEA (and not in a petstore), would there be a risk of things in the false plant that the geckos not can withstand, even if I wash the false plant first under hot water???

    I'm very sorry! But I didn't see your pacman-comment before now!
    My frog is only soon about a year. Think about 10 months. 7cm :D really nice! Froggy

    Generally live plants are fine :) rinse them with water and they should be OK. A lot of people use live plants.

    The natural humus should be fine, but if the pine bark contains shreds of pine or sticks, it could pose an impaction issue. I would opt for not using the pine substrate at all.

    I believe he's referring to post #10 where you swore, but used an asterisk to get around the language filter. Mods have since edited it out entirely.

    Oh, whatever, the swearing thing is behind us now :p
    As Ripka said, most live plants are fine. If you have them available, plants like pothos vines are a good choice,

    - Well, then I'll think about using it, but If what about one plastic/false? it's because the one in the supermarket is very nice, but still don't know if there could be something in it, the geckos won't could resistence...

    - My pacmantank is very nice, yeah ;) and thank you! hehe... have you for sure think about getting a pacman??

    - Your danish were 100% correct... nice :) google translate?

    Well... what about "unfertilized"/eco spaghnum? ;) if I chance and clean it every month?
