    Default Help deciding on the right gecko for me

    I don't know if this a good forum to ask on but I'm setting up a live plant vivariums with isopods and springtails and was wondering if a Crested Gecko or a Giant Day Gecko would be better. The enclosure will be 18x18x24 and if possible can I get pros and cons.

    It really depends on what you prefer?

    I would ALWAYS go with a crested gecko. They're much more handle able and great pets.

    The one question I had is when can I handle them like what time since they're nocturnal?

    They'll be fine being handled whenever, however, they'll be most active during night. I usually let mine out right before bed, but they are happy coming out during the day, too.

    No real answer to the real question so far. He's asking what is better Crested Gecko or a Giant Day Gecko, my friends

    Don't worry I ended up getting a Crestie and he's doing great.
