I just made a new geckos rack out of 2 storage units and heat mats.
The temp in the boxes is correct but im thinking my geckos don't like it.
Each drawer is quite big around 40,40,40. each drawer got a hide and food bowls ect. Only a 1/3 of the floor is heated by a heat mat connected to a thermostat. But they really hate it in there. the babies love it. Adults are in their own drawer.

How long do you think they will get use to it?

Put them in about 1 day but they all have a damp and dry hide.

I use a livefood tub and moss for damp and a exo terra cave for dry
using kitchen roll for substrate

Why do you think they hate it?

probably from insecurity of being in the tubs (if they're clear)
