    Hi there, my name is Kelly. I'm 22 years old and I'm in love with Leopard Geckos!
    While I don't have any experience with any reptiles I've been doing tons of research on leopard geckos before I go get one. I have always wanted to own leopard geckos since 6th grade where my teacher had two females in the class room.
    It was last night my dad mentioned turning my 29 gallon tank into a terrarium and I mentioned getting a leopard gecko and he said okay! My tank was in the family room with two goldfish when the airline tubing for the air pump leaked and we ended taking it down because the water saturated the cabinet and its no longer strong enough to hold a tank full of water.
    Anyway, I'm interested in using the insulation styrofoam and sanded grout to make the rock formations in my tank since it is taller than wider.
    I would appreciate any tips and trick or newbie information on leopard geckos or building my enclosure.

    Welcome! If you google "leopard gecko enclosures" I'm sure you'll find a lot of good ideas. I have too many geckos for setting up unusual enclosures but the one's I've seen are fun to look at.
