About This Product

This kit contains everything you need to set up a 12x12x18 bioactive enclosure for a smaller day gecko species, such as Neon Day Geckos, Gold Dust Day Geckos, Peacock Day Geckos, Lined Day Geckos, or Lygodactylus.

It includes:

1. 12x12x18 Exo Terra Glass Terrarium

This front-opening glass terrarium is a great size for 1-2 smaller day geckos. It has great cross ventilation. Make sure that the openings along the top back of the tank (where cords can go though the top) are closed or sealed.

2. 26w 5.0 UVB bulb and Fixture

This bulb and fixture will provide the UV, heat and visible light your gecko and plants need to grow!

3. Digital Thermometer and Hygrometer

The right temperature and humidity is vital to ensuring your day gecko and plants thrive, and this digital device makes it easy to check both at a glance.

4. Josh's Frogs BioBedding

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!

5. Day Gecko Small Plant Kit

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

6. Bamboo Sticks and Tubes

These form the hardscape on which your day gecko will spend most of it's time. They measure 24", and will need to be cut to fit (a hack saw works great!).

7. Leaf Litter (1 bag)

Leaf litter is simply dried leaves that replicate the forest floor in your day gecko naturalistic vivarium. Cover the Coco Cradle with leaf litter before you add springtails. You will need to add leaf litter every 6-8 months, as it breaks down.

8. Springtails and Dwarf Tropical White Isopods

Springtails are small bugs that will live in the substrate of your bioactive terrarium and eat any uneated day 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.

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