    Well from what I saw on another of your posts you seem to know the basics. I prefer to keep mine in plastic bins because it's hard to keep up humidity in my house. I'm going to glue fake plants to the outside so they are less ugly

    Hm... you know, I don't think we have a "show off your Rhac tank" thread yet... I'll have to take some update photos this weekend and start one :D

    As far as a good set-up for an adult a 20 gallon long tank situated on it's side so it's tall with a well fitted lid is perfect with lots of vegetation well anchored onto the sides and top. They don't need any heat source unless where you live frequently goes lower than 58 degrees F... the one thing you really have to worry about is high temps actually. They can get stressed and can actually die from temperatures over 80/85 degrees...
    Then of course you need a water bowl and a food bowl, for breeding females it's good to leave a cup of pure calcium in the tank as well. They can live perfectly well on the balance meal replacement powder (MRP) mixed properly with water, the best of these MRPs out on the market is Rhepashy's Crested Gecko Diet in either 1 part or 2 part formulas. You can also feed them crickets, roaches, silk worms, pheonix worms, butterworms, or wax worms. Crestie's stomachs are a bit more delicate and they can't really handle breaking down the shell of meal worms and super worms are just on the hairy edge of being too big so I never feed mine those.

    Hope that helps!
