i dont have any pictures but i can give a description.

My substrate is a layer of bed-a-beast about an inch thick. Over that i have some bark chips, a bit of spanish moss, and some fallen leaves covering the bottom. I dont use real plants, not yet anyways. The back wall of my enclosure is also covered in spanish moss, it creates a hanging wall of moss that the geckos crawl on and behind, it also works well to keep hummidity up. At one end I have a small viney little fake plant that the cresties crawl in and usually sleep in. At the other end its a potho, fern combo with the potho taking up most of the corner and the fern spreading out giving the tank a nice look. Theres a large piece of drift wood in the middle and behind that is a small water bowl and a feeding station raised off the ground to keep crickets out of it. Theres also some branches for the cresties to climb around on, each one is wrapped with a fake leafy fine, again for aesthetic appeal. Theres a 60 watt night bulb at the end with the large potho and since the potho goes from top to bottom of the cage, the geckos thermoregulate in it by moving from top to bottom and vice versa. Thats about it, if i ever manage to get a pic ill post it. Any more questions just ask and ill see if i can answer them.
