i wanted to know what lizard could live happily in a exo terra 18*18*18 cube, i was thinking a crestie but what other geckos are there i didnt want day geckos as they need uv which just makes it all more expensive and i could spend that money on good decor.

what are leaf tails like and i also quite like fan foots?

if your not too fussed about handling mate then type 'gecko' into google images and sift through the wonderfull pictures till you see one you really like then come back and we'll help you out with specific care requirments mate.
as a starter for ya, take a look at marble geckos or golden geckos, beauty's.

you can't really handle a fdan foot mate, thay are faster than light lmfao, a cresty would do ok in there though, most gecko's with sticky feet are like the squirel from the film 'over the hedge' only with speed as well as red bull lmfao with the exception of cresty's.

An 18x18x18 is fine for a juvenile Cresty, but IMO it lacks height for an adult. The same can be said for Gargoyles.

Hi Herper
From what I've read so far, they can go straight in the exo. but like Ninja says, if they are wc it may be best to quarantine in separate faunariums to start with.

Ninja - PM'ing you
