  • Hemitheconyx caudicinctus (African fat-tail) setup

    So after a couple of days of research, planning, and building, we have the enclosure for our fat-tailed done. It was actually very easy to do. This is just a 10 gallon tank we had laying around.

    One half of the enclosure is dry, mix of sand and peat moss, with an under the tank heater. The other side is regular moist peat moss. We built a rock hide on the dry/warm side right over the heater, and there is room for her to hide on the wet side under the cork bark. Furnish with water dish and small plant and away we go!

    And my gecko who is yet nameless checking out the new pad:

      *Looks at sp. name title of thread* Your herp-derp is showing.

      Awesome fat tail, I like the bright contrast. I enjoy this species, but I've found them to be a little nippy.

              Nice set up. Just curious, what is that you have separating the two substrates?

                    Nice setup, and cute geck.

                    I have a similar setup for mine, although it's a 20L with a uniform mix of coco-fiber and sphagnum moss. The end result is the same though, where the cool side stays moist, and the side with the UTH dries out quickly on its own from the heat.

                    I wish I had gone with a 10 or 15 gal though, haha. Mine's quite shy and I'm pretty sure only comes out of his warm hide when he's hungry or to poop.
