Crested geckos are beautiful animals and make great pets, but like all reptiles environment is very important. We have put this terrarium set together using a terrarium suitable for a baby right through to an adult crested gecko. We have been breeding crested geckos for a few years now and have developed this set up through experience, with the animals and the equipment.
We use a T5 lamp light to provide UV light in the day time (12-14hr light cycle – a timer is a good addition (not included)).
The heat mat we mount on the side wall of the terrarium (it is self adhesive) and this is plugged in to the thermostat. This will provide the gentle heat that the gecko requires and the thermostat will turn the heat mat on and to achieve the correct temperature.
The digital thermometer is a must – if you don’t know what the temperature is how do you know it is right? The thermometer has 2 sensors so you can put one in the hottest area and one in the coolest.
