    Crested gecko bioactive cleaning

    How often do you guys clean like the branches Leaves and stuff in your CG vivarium, like you spot clean in the enclosure or take it all off and rinse it in the sink(if that how often?)

    If you setup a real bioactive setup and by that I mean climbing structures with live plants you are not gonna remove anything to rinse it out, it tends to stay clean simply by the fact that you mist water daily, your main cleaning job will be the glass and the water and food dish which geckos tend to favor as a bathroom.

    Imagine having to untangle the plant from the branches and having to replant them after cleaning? That's a one every 10 years thing.
