Rhacodactylus geckos are arboreal animals and will do better in a taller tank then a longer
tank. Keeping that in mind, a single gecko can be kept in a 10 gallon tank or similar sized plastic storage bin and be perfectly comfortable. A pair can also be kept in a 10 gallon tank but a 29 gallon tank or similar sized storage bin is preferred when housing 2-3 geckos
together to avoid any kind of stress.
Temperature, Lighting and Heating
Keep temperatures between 70-78 degrees or room temperature. Anything over this will cause your crested to stress and could possibly lead to death. Night temperatures can drop to the mid to low 60's. A period of 12 to 14 hours of light is recommended to most of the year. 10 hours of light is appropriate during the winter months. Lightning can be easily achieved and provided with the use of fluorescent lights placed directly on the cage top. No additional heat is needed for your gecko unless you feel the need to do so or if your home is cold.
Many keepers use paper towels or newspaper as a substrate mainly for two reasons - it is easy to clean and it eliminates the risk of the gecko swallowing the substrate and becoming impacted. If you prefer a more natural looking substrate you can use Eco-earth, moss, coco fiber or a combination of any of these could be used.
Humidity can be provided by misting your enclosure twice a day. Humidity should be kept between 60-70% to allow for enclosure to dry up in between misting. Geckos tend to enjoy drinking water from their enclosures by licking the leaves and other drinking sources.
Crested Geckos are omnivorous by nature. In the wild they enjoy insects, fruits and nectar's. Feeding crested geckos and other rhacodactylus geckos can be very easy. Mr Allen Raphasy has taken all the guessing out of what to feed your Rhacodactylus friend. He created CGD -some people know it as MRP- which is a formulated diet for your gecko that you simply add water to it, mix it and your done. Ready to serve. Insects such as crickets, meal worms, silkworms and roaches can be offered twice a week. Make sure to gut load your insects first and dust them with a calcium supplement.
