    It is normal for cresteds to hang on the wall some do it some don't. Though a few more plants could help possibly.

    Try putting a few more branches in the enclosure, or switching things around so he doesn't get bored and hang on the glass. If your gecko hangs upside down for too long, it can lead to floppy tail.

    I get the Fluker's Bend-a-Branch at PetsMart. Any silk leaves I get, I purchase at craft stores. That way you pay $10 for a huge bunch of silk leaves instead of $15 for a dinky 6-ft. strand. Just be sure to wash everything off before putting it into the enclosure.

    I get some of those bend-a fines and I get plastic plants from Wal-Mart and another craft shop. (AC Moore). I also use egg crates in most of my baby tanks.

    My proudest Martha Stewart on a budget and obsessed with her geckos moment was when after finding a unique chunk of wood, i took it home, sanded it down, drilled holes in it, and added a dollar's worth of silk flowers from michaels. Its pretty awesome looking, was really cheap and my gecko loves it. It cost a dollar total, plus maybe 1 cent for the electricity or something.
