as the weather changes...this time of year where I live its cold in the morning and nite and starting to warm up during the day, but go from one extreme to the other...some day when I have extra money i will put thermostats on all my fixtures, in the meantime i adjust bulbs or add or remove to get correct temps.

this method is a pain at times but is currently working well.

i have my hubby getting some custom encloures in the works that im hoping will hold the heat and be more efficient.
My birthday is next week and he is a carpenter so when he asks what do you want of course you hand him photos and details of custom enclosures right??????

Have a great nite!

:I donít suggest using live plants; itís too much of a hassle. Crested geckos are bulky animals and if the plants are not really hardy they will not last long. It is easier just use silk plants. Falconer is right; there really is no need for lighting. If possible heat your room in the 75-78F range with a small space heater. If thatís not possible use a small wattage incandescent red bulb 24/7. However if your room is normally in this range, no need for any alternate heat sources =).
