    Lightbulb leopard gecko enclosures

    So I am just wondering if anyone has any ideas/pics of really sweet set-ups that they would like to share with me.
    I just got a trio a week or so ago, and they currently have the basics.
    well, LOL, I want to give them a
    "I've died and gone to Heaven" kind-of home!!
    any suggestions?

    I like the live planted enclosures myself. However they do come with some drawbacks that are overcomeable.

    This one houses a Chahoua Gecko



    This one houses an AFT but I will be moving her soon and putting a crestie in there.



    This is my Leopard Gecko Viv.



    My Basilisk lizards Viv.



    I don't know if they fit your idea of "i've died and gone to heaven kinda home" However my animals love them and they really arent that hard to maintain. So I thought I would throw them out there for you. Ann ( herps&harleys ) she can design you died and gone to heaven for sure.

    thank You! those definately look cool! Hopefully I have some spare time soon to put it all together. I am now envisioning lots of cool stuff!!
    I love live plants~ so this would definately be something I would enjoy!!
    I will definately have to chat with Ann, however I am a DIY kinda girl--mainly cuz I am too...(lets say).. frugal (instead of cheap)-- to pay for custom.
    (And I do very much enjoy DIY projects.)

    One thing to keep in mind is that a live planted Viv should be given some time to root and establish itself before you put an animal in it.

    Not to say it can't be done, I have done so with a couple and found it to work however they did seem to get a much slower start than any that I let establish for a couple of months before I put animals in them.
