    Gargoyle gecko viv

    New build! I got myself a retired breeder gecko last fall. She's ready to exit quarantine once I get some final fecal tests for parasites and Cryptosporidium done. I bought a whole bunch of cool stuff for her background last year and used NEHerp's "heavy duty background" technique of...

    Mealworm setup example

    The past few years, I haven't had to buy mealworms at all, so I thought I'd share the details of my small scale breeding method. Get some small containers. The ones I use are dinner-sized plastic food containers, but it doesn't matter. They should be at least 3 inches deep to keep everything...

    If at first you don't succeed...

    So, last year, my pairing ended up being a dud. You can find the thread I made regarding my female reabsorbing all her eggs. Despite that, I'm retrying the pairing this year because the female is going to be over her prime shortly and my other breeders are still young. So, now we play the game...

    Crested Gecko Viv v. 2

    Since the DIY seal job on my acrylic vivarium started leaking, it's time for a rebuild in an 18x18x24 Exo Terra terrarium. A lot of the plants and substrate from the existing viv will be transferred over to keep the bioactive base going, but I decided that I wanted to redo the background and...

    Blue death feigning beetle vivarium

    Setting up a bioactive viv for some blue death feigning beetles. I have four layers of substrate, mostly because I made a mix I didn't like and buried it, haha. Put a moister substrate in one corner to support other cleaners like isopods and springtails, some planted haworthia in the opposite...

    First Eggies

    Our crested gecko, Luna, laid her first pair of eggs this week. They should be duds since she is a female that has never been bred (as far as I know). I checked them with a flashlight out of curiosity, and they are yellow through and through. I'm glad she finally laid something. Luna's been...

    Bioactive Leopard Gecko Experiements

    I've recently been interested in trying out a more naturalistic approach with leopard geckos. I've been able to find a few helpful articles and Facebook groups so far, so I'm going to start a thread here to post updates as I explore setting up a desert bioactive enclosure. I have not done...

    Working with a Light Tent

    So, I've gotten my first light tent and studio lights, and I'm trying to work out how to use them. I'm currently working with my point-and-shoot Polaroid, which I realize isn't ideal. Still, I should be able to tweak get some decent photos. Looking these over after my photo shoot, a few...

    Amoré the Leopard Gecko

    Meet Amoré, the first leopard gecko I've had the pleasure of owning. This gecko belonged to relatives originally. It was the all-too-familiar story of a young man who bought the pet and then lost interest, leaving it at his parents' house. While they were well-meaning people and by no means...
