View Full Version : Leaf Cham Question
05-28-2006, 11:23 AM
If my room temperture stays between 70-80 or even can spike to 85 in summer do I need to give them any heating or can I just let them stay at room temp? I know I wouldn't on the hot days. Just wondering if they need a little heat on the 70-80 days or when it doesn't go above 75.

Brian what kind do you have? If 70 is a night time low that wouldn't be bad but as a daytime high that is too low. I would shoot for 75F.

I don't have any at the moment. These are on my list so to speak. From whay I'm gathering I may be able to get away without heat. There's just 3 or so weeks where it gets really hot here. The Cresties and Cave geckos made it OK. Not sure if these would though.
I'm tempted to try and make a cold house out of a styrofoam cooler.

Well I kind of am thinking in the very hottest part of the year it may get a bit too hot, so I'm going with Gonis and Tribs for now. I may attempt to deal with the leaf chams in the Fall.
