About This Product

This kit contains everything you need to set up a 12x12x18 bioactive enclosure for a young crested gecko (up to 8 months old). For an adult crested gecko, you'll want to grab the larger kit. For information on how to keep crested geckos happy and healthy, read our article Caring for Crested Geckos.

Key products include:

Glass Terrarium and Lighting

The building blocks that you need to create a crestie heaven with lighting that promotes plant growth and have happy geckos!

Humidity Control & Monitoring

A spray bottle allows you to mist the tank to keep the humidity right where it needs to be. The thermo-hygrometer helps you monitor the temperature and humidity levels within the tank. Humidity levels should be between 60-70% and temperatures between 74-78F.

Josh's Frogs BioBedding Tropical Bioactive Substrate & Other Substrate Items

Place a 2-3" layer of BioBedding in your enclosure. Add dechlorinated or R/O water until BioBedding sticks together when squeezed, but no water runs out. Leaf litters and cork provide additional hiding spots for your geckos and an added feeling of security. Plus, they make your tank look cool!

Live Plants

We've picked the perfect plants for your crested gecko tank. The plant kit contains two vining plants, that should be planted in the substrate towards the back of the tank. 2 terrestrial plants will provide a great place for your crested gecko to hide and hang out in as it grows.

Springtails and Isopods

Springtails and Isopods are small bugs that will live in the substrate of your bioactive terrarium and eat any uneated crested gecko food and waste left in your tank. Simply add a bit of distilled or spring water to the culture, then dump the excess water (and floating springtails) directly into the substrate.

Food & Water Dish

Dishes to provide fresh food and water to your gecko friends. Also includes Josh's Frogs Dechlorinator to remove harmful chlorine from water.

For complete care of your gecko also buy the Crested Gecko Supplement Bundle and the Crested Gecko Feeder Bundle
