It might be larger but I know these work fine. You can always go bigger, it's your pets haha
Yes, I am wanting to go the biggest I can afford.
Good to know. Are they escape artists?
I would LOVE to go to a reptile show!! But, we live in a rural area, so none are close by.
I think I will get a Cham after I have a couple more years (at least) of experience under my belt.
Out of my choices, which would you pick?
Crested geckos are the houdinis of the reptile world.
I'm kidding... almost. They can be really fast and can be escape artists. A friend of mine named hers Goku because of how fast he moved.
What aeral said. They're quick, but not exactly escape artists. Just make sure the usual reptile precautions are there so they can't get out.
So, I've decided one thing! Going to get the 18x18x24 Exo Terra terrarium. I'd like to go bigger, but can't afford it ATM. I really like the look of this, plus the double doors which the zoomed terrariums don't have.
I have a question- what kind of lighting do I need? I want to provide the proper lighting for the gecko, but I also want to try my hand at live plants
Also, I am kind of thinking about taking a crested gecko out of the running, since they are fairly dull colored. But, I am not sure yet.
I think you need to decide on which gecko before we can surely tell you but I do not think you will need any special lighting unless the plants require it.
So, I decided on what species I will be getting!
Well, you can't post that without telling!
I decided on a Tokay!
Well, congratz on your choice, I was going to say crested due to the ease of care and lack of needing live food or special light, but tokays are cool. And I take it you either don't drive or are several hours from any major city, usually googling reptile show with the name of your city will bring up something, but you might have to drive a ways to get to it.
I looked on the list of retile shows on this forum, and the only one in our state was a couple months ago and about 6 hours away. None in the surrounding states, either.
I don't mind feeding live foods, or using special lighting, either
What place do you recommend I get my Tokay from? I would like to get a CB baby, and I want one from a good breeder that has nice colors. I was thinking about LLLReptile, but their tokays look pretty dull.
You could probably keep a trio of cresties in either. I kept a trio of juveniles in my 55 along with a few dendrobates. Moved the cresties into a bigger tank eventually. Plus, they're really awesome because they can eat a prepared diet.
Thanks for the advice, but I decided on a Tokay
