i would think they give off to much humidity for a leo viv! but if it didnt, i would probably loose the water bowl.

they are a waste of money if you ask me...they break, harbour loads of nasty germs and mostly why???. a water dish does the job just fine and dandy...you don't get a whole load of mini waterfalls where leos are from!! :D

a nice rock dish would do the job just as well as a waterfall.....put some cork bark in couple of interesting tubes a bit of greenery just try and make it look like a natural environment....(oh and moving water will whack the humidity right up there as well, not good for leos..)

is it a hollow log?

sounds good...would suggest one thing..try using sphagnum moss in your shedding box/moist hide...looks more natural and holds water really well...costs about £2.00 for a big bag in B&Q/homebase...

sounds like you have more than enough to keep them occupied! :)

you can buy that bamboo screening, i have put that on the back of all my viv's, just looses the blandness of being a 'box'. also, periguin are just starting a whole new range of bowls and hides, some of these are sooooooooooooo cool!!! :D
