Our Crested Gecko Platinum Kit provides everything you will need to get started with a Crested Gecko. The 60cm x 45cm x 90cm glass terrarium provides them with loads of space, giving them the ability to climb as they would naturally, as well as meaning that the temperature and UV gradient within the enclosure is more natural. We have included more accessories, though decoration often comes down to personal taste.
What's in This Kit?
This Crested Gecko Gold kit comes with an Exo Terra 60cm x 45cm x 90cm terrarium, along with a, adjustable stand, clamp lamp bulb holder and heat bulb, that is controlled using a dimming thermostat, so you can be sure that this is kept at just the right temperature. The dimming thermostat will not only keep your heat at the required temperature, but also ensure that it can't overheat, keeping both you and your Crestie safe at all times. There is a thermometer for checking of the temperature, as well as hygrometer to monitor your humidity levels as well.
For the UV lighting we have included an Arcadia ShadeDweller UV lighting kit, which provides the optimum low level of UV, whilst still being strong enough to penetrate effectively through the mesh top, and provide your Crested Gecko with a good quality UV light that will help them to stay strong and healthy.
For substrate we have packed a coco brick, which just needs to be soaked in water to expand and provide fresh coco soil for the enclosure, as well as Hydro Rocks and Hydro Matting, meaning you can easily set up a reservoir system underneath the soil. This reservoir is ideal for maintaining humidity levels, as the water stored here is soaked back into the soil, keeping it moist and therefore raising the humidity. This is also really important if you are using live plants, as they need this water supply, and it is easy to just top up the water to ensure the rocks at the bottom are submerged. The live plants themselves also contribute towards the humidity levels, meaning you are less likely to have highs and lows of humidity, when you spray for example, but a more stable long term humidity range throughout the day. For more information about setting up for live plants and how the water reservoir works, see our blog about Bioactive enclosures.
The Swell Rain System provides perfect humidity, and is easy to use to ensure there is adequate humidity in the terrarium. It comes complete with a 9l reservoir and ensures that you can easily spray the entire terrarium at the click of a button - or use a ProRep timer and have it set up automatically throughout the day! We have also included pure Calcium dust and a Gecko supplement powder, to ensure that you are providing the right supplements to your Crested Gecko.
There is a selection of plants and vines to, to ensure your Gecko feels at home and is able to move freely, though a terrarium of this size will really benefit from large pieces of natural wood and vines, so we would recommend to add these in once you're set up (best picked in person!). Lastly, we have included some fresh live moss, and some disinfectant to ensure you can keep it look at its best all the time!
