Any help would be very much appreciated.
Turkish geckos are a native species in my country. They are extremely hardy animals and love to hide in between rocks.

They do rarely come out during the day to bask but most of the time I have seen them come out at night to hunt. These geckos do not require UVB

Keep it in a 10gallon even a 20 gallon tall tank. They are arboreal not land dwellers.

Temperatures during the day 75F-86F and can have a night time drop of 75F-65F

As food I have seen most of them eat both larvae and crickets, so meal worms, wax worms, crickets and even small roaches they will eat.
