If you can't tell, he is a crested gecko. I need some tips on how to care for him properly. He is coming to me with a 10 gallon tank. I have a 5.5 gallon and I was thinking of getting a hamster tube or something so he has two different tanks to play in and can get back and forth on his own. Has anyone tried that? How'd it work for you? Also I have read so many different thing about them, I just need a plain and simple care sheet.

Thank you! He belonged to my boss. She was very good with him. He will jump from one hand to the other when he is feeling lively. He is awesome!

Sounds like a really fun pet. I didn't know they got that tame, that's great. Alison

Oh yeah. I've read that they're easier then leos. I had a Leo and he bit me all of the time. But I was also like 11 when I had him so I probably deserved it. Haha.

I had a girlfriend who had one, so this is coming secondhand (so take from it what you will), But she told me that they need a kind of tall set up because of them being climbers. I think hers was in a 29 or something.

Oh yeah I read about that somewhere. I have a 10 gallon tank set up on its side so it's extra tall. He loves it.
