    Yep, flexwatt is very easy to use. I think Big Apple sells the cords with the clamps already attached. All you do is squeeze and then tape them up. I bought the little plastic protector things and found them pretty useless. They're just big and in the way. Just use some electrical tape and tape the clamps and flexwatt up real good.

    How many millimeters is your loupe? I'm looking at one thats only 12mm and that seems like it would be awfully hard to see through being so tiny. It'll probably seem bigger in person .

    Marina, Now you are going to make me do math, LOL. I know it is a one inch lens. That equates to a 25.4 mm lens and I would suggest nothing under say a 3/4 inch lens or it will be very hard to work with I would imagine. That half inch lens may do the trick but, I wouldnt bet on it. What gecko species are you trying to sex anyway? I guess that would kinda determine what size optics to use.

    Ok I just bought 3 loupes. One is an 18mm 10x, one is a 21mm 30x , and the other is a dual 14mm 10x and 12mm 20x. In a way it's 4 loupes but one is a dual........... At least now I know I'll always have the right magnification .

    Marina, Where did you buy them and what did you have to pay for those?/ did you find out what brand you were buying as well. I am looking for a 15 or 20X Loupe for my younger geckos in hopes of being able to determine their sexes even earlier.

    Clark and Donn,
    Thank you for the good info; I see I was working under some misconceptions! I had read you needed a special (very expensive) crimping tool to fasten the cord onto the tape. Plus, I had no idea how many thermostats it would require. That sounds a lot easier than I thought....sounds easily customizable. I'll search around a little on the Web, and see if any of the vendors hitting the Atlanta show will be selling it. Thank you.

    I bought them brand new off Ebay. It never ceases to amaze me what I can find on there.... Anyway I'm not sure what brand they are but here's the link for them:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/30x-dual-20x-10x...QQcmdZViewItem
    I did the buy it now option because I'm too impatient to let $2 get in my way :wink: . I figured that with two 10x, a 20x, and a 30x I wouldn't ever be wanting for more magnification.
