    Hello! I have a crested gecko (male, about 2.5 years old). He's always been super mellow, hardly even jumps. I hand feed him about every other day because he doesn't seem to eat otherwise. He's been hiding behind his background for a few days, which he's done before but always seems to be able...

    I've got my first crested gecko arriving soon, and I've got a bioactive set up that's been running for around a month now with isopods and springtails, so should be ready for it. However, in my research I've seen some people suggest that juveniles should be kept on moist paper towels to reduce...

    Hey everyone! Thought I'd sign up as I am soon to become a reptile keeper for the first time! I kept fish as a teenager, and used to be a real regular on fish forums back in the day, so also can't wait to get back into forum life. I'm Philippa, but you can call me Phil. I've set up a small...

    About 2 months ago I moved my crestie into a new, larger vivarium, and I believe she has pretty much settled in. She has now taken to sleeping in the same spot everyday, and it seems like a strange spot to me, wedged in between the side backdrop and the front glass (see pic). Is it typical for...

    I just setup a new bioactive vivarium (pic below) for my for my 16 month 31g crested gecko. She outgrew her current biocative vivarium, and it has become overrun with slugs to the point that I believe it is affecting her health (she has little appetite and her weight is stagnant). I tried...

    Hi everyone, I've had a crestie for a few years now and reasonably early on I bought him a Zoo Med fountain. I discovered that he was sitting under the water which caused it to run down his back and out of the fountain so I got a tray to contain the water. The problem is that he will empty all...

    My gecko is now up to 15g (nearing 10 monts old), and I'm hoping its big enough to identify the gender. This is my first reptile, any of you more experienced keepers able to tell me what gender you think it is, and your confidence level? Pictures Here

    Hi, I’m currently in the aquarium hobby, and have been for 3 years, but sadly my aquariums are getting too heavy for my furniture (only 30ltrs!) and that means I’m likely gonna have to take them down and rehome my shrimps and snails. So I want to try reptile keeping instead! I’m thinking of...

    I'm looking for an adult or juvie crestie, any nice patterning is welcome but I love dalmatian morphs in particular. I'm seeing a fair few babies about but would like one old enough to have more established patterning, as from what I've read spot progression is highly variable. I'm on a bit of...

    Hello! It's been a while since I've been on here but I'm moving house and have to make a crestie-based decision that I am struggling to decide upon. I have 3 tanks currently - two 60x45x60 exos and a 90x45x60. I would like to give the geckos in the smaller tanks some more room so want to bump...

    hello! Looking for advice on a baby crestie set up. What size faunarium/fish tank would you recommend and how long for age wise? Also would a small terrarium be better to start with? I know that babies can feel overwhelmed and lost in a larger set up so looking at the best (and most cost...
