Not sure.
Hi all, I’m back at it again with my crappy natural enclosure and this one is for a thick tailed gecko.
I’m still hunting one if these guys down so if you have any for sale, pm me.


Alright, the enclosure i’m using is a old aqua one fish tank.
It measures roughly 40cmx30cmx30cm.

For a substrate i’m using my normal mix of coco fibre, sand, charcoal and Eucalyptus mulch.

After I had finished mixing the substrate i added leaves and some bark so they could be underwood.😉
I also added a reptile hide.

Finally time to add some plants!
For this tank i used: moss, Pothos, a Native orchid, and some Wandering Jew.

Something that i really wanted to give these geckos was a place to thermoregulate. Since i’m not heating this tank, i added sphagnum moss into the hide to keep it damp and cool.

And with that the tank was done,
Thank you for reading my boring thread, i hope you enjoyed it.

Hopefully i’ll be happy with the looks of it and not tear it down within the week to re do it.
