Hello!

So I picked up my Tokay Gecko this weekend, I'm not sure if it's a male or female yet. For now I'm calling it a he : ) He is about 6 inches long and seems to be pretty healthy. My only concern is that right now he is in a ten gallon tank with a screen top. I've read a couple articles that seem to offer conflicting advice -

1) Screen Top - some articles say that a screen top should be used while others say that they shouldn't because they can damage the gecko's toes.

2) Drinking - some articles state that Tokay Gecko's will not drink from water bowls but only drink from misting leaves or other objects in the tank, but of course I've read other articles about Tokay's drinking just fine out of water bowls.

I will be building a new cage in a couple weeks so this ten gallon cage is only temporary. His new cage will be 18x12x18. Will this be large enough for a single adult Tokay Gecko? Would it be large enough for him to have a mate once I determine what he or she is?
