I would imagine the cooler temps would be a bear to maintain. How do you kep them cool enough during summer, little mini air conditioners? Lol

I keep the house cold and I use mini fans to keep the T5s under control.

Here's some pictures of my 3 little "Russians". Their names are "Lucy"(female) "Scooby"(male) and "Pat"(undetermined). They all live outdoors full time, in a 6'x4' covered hutch.

"Skooby"


"Lucy"


"Pat" is the little one in the middle of the "Lunch Time" shot.

It's surprisingly low actually. That is actually a standard Ficus benjamina, I find that the dwarf forms don't get branches useful for adult geckos unless it's a fairly old plant to begin with.

Rescue turtles at my house. Two red-eared sliders a florida cooter and common musk. The sliders and cooter clean up all my plant clippings.

Mine aren't very skittish once they are comfortable. I've had a few that refused to eat or move when being watched. They definitely don't like being handled or moved. They are also strictly nocturnal. Definitely challenging, at least for me, and not always exciting to watch, but all the more rewarding to see them do well. I got into aquariums because of plants and the constant activity to offset the "go away" attitude of my geckos.

Darts are not great swimmers and will easily drown. Make sure you have easy access out of the water for them. Any pics??

I actually changed it up. I put my white's tree frogs in there since the plants were more like their habitat than a leucs. And i wasn't concerned about the water at all. I talked to a LOT of people about the water. Yes, there are plenty of places for them to get out. Here's a pic from last night before i put my guys in their new home. I do have other builds going, so one will be a leuc tank, just not sure which yet

Thanks guys. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. I planted the aquatic section light because i have quite a bit of chain sword in there that will shoot runners out. And few plants that will grow out to be emersed as well. It should look totally different in a few months.
