    Your tank looks amazing! I'm looking to do something similar. Can you tell me what pump and filter you used for your tank?

    Looking better and better with each post. How is the water feature turning out for you? I'd love to set one up for my next build.

    The vines was made by zoo med actually then I soaked it so I could bend it ... I was straight.
    The filter was a repiflo I believe I have to double check that.
    The water feature is awesome and the geckos love it.. definitly comes in handy if it gets too hot in the summer, they'll sit along the cork or on the slate. I would just make sure your drainage level is high enough, my substrate was getting too soggy first time around.

    Can you please explain to me what materials you used and exactly how you constructed your false bottom. It looks like it functions great, and I am considering incorporating a similar idea into my new build. If I can figure out how you did it.

    I would add some moss to the river rocks. That way the water can still filter through but the geckos won't have to much worry. Very nice job! I'm looking forward to more pictures later!

    Silicone a fine screen over the pond. It is keep geckos out and debris. It will also allow you to have a larger amount of water so you don't have to worry about your pump running dry. Just an idea...
