:Do you use the grow lights for plants in the tank? Because UV is not really necessary for nocturnal geckos. I would suggest removing one (it should not bother the plants if there is only one) of them and making room for the incandescent light. A UTH will make the glass way to hot for a crested, unless you hook up a rheostat. Also since you are using a loose substrate I highly recommend you use bowls when feeding your geckos. This way any misfires while trying to catch crix will not lead to a mouth full of substrate.

Yes I use the lights for plants as you can see by my first post. 5 out of 8 of my display tanks have live plants and all tanks and racks that are heated have a rheostat or a esu thermastat. I will try making room on top of the tank for a heat source but I would rather go with a CHE. I'll try using a dish for the live food, it should also help with the crickets breeding in the tank.

Thanks RandyS
