Thank you for your reply. It was a lot of information expressed in a simple format, so I could "digest" it easier and understand it better. I have 3 questions and I'd really appreciate it if you can help =)
1) do I absolutely have to use a Reptisun tubular light? I've got a very expensive Powersun 100watts self ballasted Mercury Vapor bulb, which the petshop said I had to buy. Is that ok, or did I waste my money?
2)Can I use Flukers cricket food to gut-load them, or do I have to worry about special diets for crickets?
3)About caging and substrate;not too sure what to do. I know chams need screen cages, but I'm presuming that's only if the temperature of your house is reasonable. My house id old and drafty, and gets down to the 58-60 degrees at night during the winter. I thought that was too cold for Esmerelda, so I put her in a glass exoterra, about 18x18x18, to maintain heat better. I keep the screen top open for ventilation, and open the glass doors several times a day for ventilation. Is that ok?
4)I'm using 1/2 inch eco earth, with an undertank heater in case she wants to hang out on the ground to catch crickets. Is that ok?

and one last thing... she can't climb at sharp vertical angles or hang onto thick branches like a normal cham can because she's missing two toes. So I was thinking I should maybe change her cage to a tank that has more width than height to compensate. That way she doesn't have to climb so high to reach warmth and light. What do you think about that?
Thanks for your patience
