I was sitting at an expo talking to potential customers when an issue came to light. One of the people looking at my geckos asked the question "What all do I need to set a gecko up?" As I ran through the list of 20 gallon aquarium, heat pad, thermostat, etc. I could see their eyes widen and begin to look around at the tables selling supplies. Most of the items were available for sell, but not all. This customer left without purchasing, and I began to wonder how many of my geckos were going home without the proper setup. I knew I needed to create a solution so that my geckos were properly maintained, my customers were properly prepared, and I could have piece of mind sending these animals to a new home.
I set out to create an all in one setup. It needed to be display quality and appeal to not only new owners, but also experienced keepers. The design had to be simple so that new owners were not struggling to figure out the setup.
I could remember the days before I used racks, and tried to correct all the issues I experienced with converting an aquarium into a suitable vivarium for a gecko.
Then end result is an enclosure that looks great in your home, is easy to use, and addresses all the issues with the traditional glass aquarium. No more shopping pet stores, and multiple websites to get the basics for the correct setup for your gecko. Simply set it in its location, plug in the thermostat, set and verify your temps, and decorate. My enclosures are all handmade. Take a look at the pics below to see the building process and finished enclosure.
