    Getting a crestie

    So my wife has talked me into (took about 1.5 seconds) getting a crested gecko or two when we go the the New Hampshire Reptile Expo on the 31st. We have been preparing to get 2 ball pythons but now we are adding some geckos to the list of purchases. Started to get supplies together to build a tub. Will update with progress as I start putting it together.

    I like how you admitted that it took about 1.5 seconds to talk you into this-

    I give you credit for expanding your "list" ahead of time (& making preparations for them). It's rough if you just make impulse-buys & aren't set up for them.

    I'm a project kinda guy. I hate siting on the couch watching TV. I always have 3 or 4 going at once. Though this one will start off quick with a tub since time is limited but I will do a "better" one in the future.

    I made the impulse buy mistake once and it was real hard playing catch up. Less than 2 weeks is kinda tight for researching but crested geckos seem fairly straight forward. I've always wanted a Reptile room so it really doesn't take much to talk my into another one though I did talk her "down" to 2 crested instead of some others as we don't actually have a room yet to dedicate to reptiles. We are all so excited to go to the Reptile show.

    Picked up supplies. Some more coming from Amazon hopefully tomorrow. Will start set up tomorrow should be fairly quick. Looking to get some juveniles so I have some time to create something bigger. Starting to research bio active sounds interesting.

    Re: Getting a crestie

    My wife Dove right in and helped with this one. Think it's more her project then mine, I'm just giving some guidance. Cut the door (lid) for a bottom piece to hold in substrate and items. Then cut it for screen and hot glue it in place. Put a few pieces to lock the top and bottom together so no escapees. Was a productive hour well spent after the kids went to bed with YouTube videos of crested geckos on in the background.
