Hey everyone, my first time visiting this forum. I'm a regular in the herp health forum.

I've had a phelsuma m. madagascarensis (is that the right spelling?) for a long time now, but he's in a relatively small and sterile enclosure. I have a naturalistic vivaria that is in it's bi-yearly rebuild that is 1/3 shallow water with 2 fire bellied newts in it. I am considering adding my phelsuma to it when it's done. My reasoning is that the two species use different niche's in the enclosure and wouldn't stress each other out. The phelsuma would definately benefit from the natural vivaria. I also have a gargoyle gecko. In the same position as the phelsuma. Being nocturnal, will it and the phelsuma be in competition or any other stressfull arrangement?

Thanks everyone, and nice to meet you

Ian
