Leopard Gecko Set-up

The background structure made out of polystyrene .... layered with grout, painted, and sprayed with a finishing solution. Bottom is tile (which fit perfectly into a 20L and easy to clean!). Some of the succulents are live. I didn't want something with a lot of crevices, since I think there's nothing worse than loose (noisy) crickets.

Also opted for sand-free since it can potentially pose a risk to ingestion.

Sweeeeeeeeettt! I wonder if there are rocks with holes in them you could plant your succulents into to make it look a little more natural if desired?

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

Thanks everyone!

There are mini clay pots in there .... one tipped over and does look like a kong! I think I bought them awhile ago for something else - they were the right size so I just placed them in there.

OK...I really love this set up. I've got a 20L sitting in a closet and have been trying to decide what to do with it. I think it might be time for another Leo! You are an inspiration!
