    Default "Pool"

    I think I asked about this in another thread but don't remember seeing an answer (or missed it if there was one). Regarding small "pool" of water in the tank - is it necessary, or if I mist lightly in the morning and heavily at night, and there's always a feeding cup of water in there, do they still need the little "pool"? Running out of space on the floor of my tank!

    Well there shouldn't be any standing water at the bottom of the tank. If you're using paper towel it should only be the tiniest bit damp after the heavy night misting cause it's "heavy" as in make sure all the sides of the glass have water droplets on them and make sure all the plants do too. The paper towel shouldn't get very wet realistically. You don't want bacteria building up on wet paper towel. If the humidity doesn't spike high enough you can add a shallow water dish to the tank to add humidity.

    I have shallow water dishes in my tanks (i.e. shallow bowls and, in one case, a cream cheese container) and the geckos like to bathe in there from time to time. The water also helps to maintain humidity levels in the winter here, when the house gets really dry.

    By "pool", I meant those shallow dishes. I do use paper towels, but they are never wet, even after misting. I'm sorry for the confusion!

    Oh OK lol. Someone a whole pack mentioned having to spray so hevily that it left a poil if water at the bottom if their tank but the humidity still didn't get high enough so I thought that's what you meant lol.

    But yeah a shallow water dish is always a really good idea.
