My current tank setup


New Member
hey all!

i just wanted to show my new setup for my baby cresties (okay, maybe more juvies? they are about 5-6 months now, the smallest is 3,6gramms, the other two are 4,5 and 6,8 gr)
i know the tank isn't ideal, but i'm pretty sure it'll be alright for a while, until they grow and i can save up for a big, properly tall terrarium
there's cocofibre on the ground, along with some live moss (from a petstore), a bromelia and a... fern. i don't know what it's called in english, but it's safe for pets, even when eaten there's a heating lamp on one side, so it won't get too hot, but they can walk over there if they want to warm up
i kept one half of the tank mostly clear, so the little ones won't get lost and will have access to their little food dish (which isn't on the photos cause i took it out for cleaning)
in the plastic box, i'm keeping my mealworm pupae
i think that's fine, too, they can't harm the little geckos and they're warm and safe from escaping in there
i tried introducing a few small hides, but the buddha nut thing started growing mold and everything else was just ignored
they seem to love just hanging out between the bromelia leaves, so i guess that's fine for now :)

the whole thing, atop of my leopard gecko tank

p.s. i forgot to mention, i put a handful of dendrobena earth worms and a couple Trichorhina tomentosa in as well, to help keep stuff healthy in there (i picked them out of my achatina snail tank, where they've been doing awesome work)
