I have posted this on a gecko site and decided to post it here too for a better chance of getting a reply tonight. I have never had geckoes and today I agreed to take in a (assumed) leopard gecko. A nine year old girl, that I've known since she was born, found a gecko at a yard sale for free. The owner didn't/couldn't care for it and the girl wanted it so she got it. She can't even take care of a dog properly, so I know she can't care for any type of reptile. She is a troubled girl with a big loss that is still fresh. I have two bearded dragons, Mushu is two and a half years old and Yoshi is a year and a half. I have Supplies for them. Fluker's repta calcium with vitamin D3 and phosphorus free, Rep-cal Herptivite with beta carotene: multivitamins for all reptiles and Amphibians, a 30" x 12" x 18" 29 gallon tank with a tank topper, 65 watt heat bulbs, a clamp lamp and a few other used decorations. I use Zilla 24-Inch Desert 50 UVB T8 Fluorescent Bulb, 17-Watt for my dragons but I currently don't have any that aren't in use. I feed my bearded dragons crickets and always have them. This is all I can use for the moment since I don't live anywhere near a pet store. It would be quicker to order stuff online than it would be getting to a pet store. I have not personally seen the gecko and from the description it is a small leopard gecko. It is in a small plastic container about twice the size of a milk jug. They are calling it a him, I'll see about that when I check him out. He is not officially named, but she apparently called it a devil. He has no lights or heating pad. Nothing is in its cage. Absolutely nothing. I'm not sure about anything else. I should be getting him tomorrow. I have so many questions so I'm going to list them. 1. What can I do when I get him tomorrow with what I have on hand? 2. What should I order for him? Basic things that every leopard gecko needs. 3. Should I keep him in the small container he is in already until I get stuff for the 29 gallon tank? I also have a 10 gallon tank that had a tank topper that I can't find at the moment. 4. What's best for him when he gets to me? 5. How do a make the transition to a good environment easy for him? 6. Can I put the heat lamp on him until I get a heating pad? 7. Will the 29 gallon tank be suitable for him for the rest of his life? 8. Can he transmit anything to my beardies? 9. Is quarantine needed? If so, how long? 10. How should I clean the 29 gallon tank? It had one of my bearded dragons in it months ago and it just got rinsed out since I did not see myself using it anytime soon. I need everything I can get from more knowledgeable people. Any and all information and tips are welcome. Please help me help this poor little guy.
