A few questions from a cestie wanna be

Hi All,

I don't have any crested geckos but have an interest in getting one (yes, just one :) I have a couple of questions though that I have not seen answered in the reading I have done.

1). They are said to be nocturnal...so how much stress does it cause to get them out to "play" in the daytime...I don't plan on being up at 2am to get the crestie out.

2). Do males or females make a better choice...or is there no difference?

3). How often is best to clean the enclosure. I have read they are messy and must be kept very clean which does not lead to having a very naturalist house for them. I don't want to have to tear apart the tank every week...is that really needed to keep a crestie happy and healthy (I have read that it is).

I so far only know about crested geckos from what I have read but have a few years experience raising and breeding multiple species of Poison Arrow Frogs and it seems the crestie prefers a similar (but less wet) habitat as the frogs.

Thanks,
Tammy
