    Default 15g "naturalistic" tank

    Hey everyone, this is my first post. I'm looking to pick up a leopard gecko or two in the coming months so I decided to take my newly vacant 15g tank and put together a more natural looking enclosure.

    I started by taking some "almond" silicone caulk to coat the bottom, back, and sides of the tank (the bottom was eventually removed). Initially I intended on using some calcium sand for the substrate, however after reading about leo's tendencies for eating sand and the fact that they really don't have much sand in their native habitat, I decided to go with some ceramic tiles instead. I used liquid nails to secure the tiles to the bottom of the tank, then used a silicone grout-like product to fill in the gaps.

    Some of the comments I've gotten have expressed concern over the rocks. I've tested it and they are VERY sturdy. It would take falling off the stand for those rocks to tumble.

    Hope you enjoy, and I am always open to some constructive criticism.

    It is, of course, still a work in progress. I'm looking for some ideas on fake plants to spice things up a bit.

    Very nice setup. I love tile, it is so easy to keep clean and I think looks better than sand. Thanks for sharing!
