Do you think it would be better to get the tiles cut to size then just lay them in place then?

Thats what I did but used the aquarium sealant. That way they are easy to move if i need to later (just cut the sealant away).

hi guys, just reading your post, ive got geckos on tiles but we didnt stick them down because the heat mat are under them, that way if the heat mat became faulty we can sort the problems with less fuss,and they can be removed for ease of cleaning, ours are a tight fit too and didnt need gaps filling in, i was worried that the gecks would get toes stuck at first but they seem to know where the cracks are and step over them, i was wondering if i should tile my water dragons viv too? at the moment he is on bark any ideas anyone?

i wouldnt recommend vinal tiles get some ceramic ones cut them to size,they go staight on top of the heat mat, they work realy well, just remember to buy some with a bit of a rough feel to them or you will find your geckos sliding all over the place, hope this helps?
