Has anyone tried keeping any day geckos with mantellas?
I've got a 2 ft tall x 3 ft long x 1 ft deep tank that I'm considering making into a Madagascar enclosure, probably with a 1.2 trio of day geckos, right now I'm leaning towards Peacock Days (Phelsuma quadriocellata) and a 1.2 trio of painted mantellas (Mantella madagascarensis) along with a lot of moss and plants and a small shallow pool.
The temperature and humidity requirements work, with the exception of the basking spot for the Phelsumas. The day geckos are of course mainly arboreal and i've read that mantellas tend to stay near the ground, so I think there shouldn't be too much problem in that regard. Any ideas/comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated though.
