My little guy is doing great and almost ready to move into his new home (medium pvc/zippered mesh from a 10 gallon tank). A couple of questions:

What is the best way to line the bottom to catch water/dust etc? Should I put something inside the cage or place the whole set-up inside a tray?

What is the best way to secure the lamps outside the mesh? I'm hesitant to put the hoods directly on the mesh (in case of melting? is this even possible?).

Should the lights be on the top or sides?

I live in a very dry climate. Is a fogger a good idea to keep up humidity/provide drinking water?


And a couple of other quick q's:

How often should I be dusting with calcium? Multi-vitamins?

How often should he shed?

I'm picking up a 6 x2.5 x2.5 zippered mesh home for him tomorrow ($50 used -heck yes!). How big should he be before i move him into this?


Thanks everyone -pictures coming soon!
