Thank you again for all of the advice. I will definitely read up on the species. I have a few questions. How do I keep the humidity up? Also, do I keep the lights on at night too? I have the red heat lamp for the Fat tail and I have a daylight blue bulb for the Golden gecko. You also mentioned live snake plants. How would I do that? Put them in a small container and keep them in the tank? Can I use branches from outside or is that not a good idea? I do have good news, the fat tail finally was up last night walking around and not just sleeping in the container with the moist paper towels and he also pooped. So he has to be eating. I put a couple of dusted crickets in with him but he just seems to let them walk around him. I still haven't seen him pee though. I have seen the Golden gecko do both. He hides a lot and seems kind of nervous. Will he get more tame? I also noticed that the Golden changes colors. The fat tail is so sweet & calm. Thanks again for all of the advice. I will post more photos when I get things fixed.
