Our Leopard Gecko Bioactive Build for Banana
We are a Group for anyone who has or is interested in Leopard Geckos (Eublepharis macularius), from brand new owners to long time keepers! We are an open-minded group that understands there is more than one way to keep a Leopard Gecko. However, we do advocate for care practices that are based in Science and Herpetology.
This is an "implementation" of their reference as of May 2021. Any mistakes are probably mine. Their recommendations should supersede mine -- they have much much more experience than I do.

- Zebra isopods
- Springtails (on order)
Thinset mortar adheres better than grout and has a little more flexibility. You can also get 50 lbs of thinset mortar for the price of 10 lbs of grout.. although I probably used less than 10 lbs.
