20G Vivarium Journal
Well I think I have decided to take the leap into keeping lizards- likely yellow headed day geckos- in a live vivarium.
The plan is this:
1. Get a full glass top.
2. Buy either some topsoil or some reptile substrate mix with sphagnum, fir and peat.
3. Lay a 2" layer of aquarium gravel for a drainage layer, with a hidden tube that goes to the bottom that will allow me to siphon out old water every once in a while.
4. Buy plants and start trying to grow them in the vivarium.
5. After getting a feel for the plants add some wood hardscape- not sure what kind, but something branchy. Can stuff I find outside work?
6. Buy the geckos.
Any ideas or suggestions from anyone on this plan? I know it will take a while, and I quite ok with that. I want to research this thing to the max before I dive into buying lizards and stuff.
