yes, pygmy leaf chams are very cute! i recently purchased one and have been having luck keeping him in a ten gallon aquarium (which i've been told is fine for pygmies) with soil and moss substrate. they need pretty high humidity (80-90) but do not need super high temps (70-80). i am still a beginner and do not know all the specifics, and i could very well be making some mistakes myself, but my cham seems to enjoy himself. pygmy leaf chams are not as inclined as other cham species to climbing high up, which is why length of enclosure is longer than height; my guy is very active and crawls around in the soil a lot -- i found that weird at first, but he looks like he's happy! here's a good link: http://www.adcham.com/html/taxonomy/species/r-brevicaudatus.html. some sites say they don't need uvb bulbs, but i have one (just in case), and i also use a 60 watt basking light, but i've been told that the temp is too high. good luck!
