    Hello I am in the process of researching before I get a leopard gecko. iPower 6"x 8" 8 Watt Terrarium Reptile Heating Pad Under Tank Warmer Heater Mat with Digital Thermostat https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079LY7JPK/?tag=exoticpetnetw-20 This the heater I plan on getting. And two digital thermometers. Exo Terra Short All Glass Terrarium, 24 by 18 by 12-Inch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008N9LRCK/?tag=exoticpetnetw-20 This is the tank I am thinking of getting and I plan on having 3 hides one warm hide, one cool hide, and one wet hide. Plus two bowls one for water and one to put calcium in for them to lick if they need. I plan on feeding crickets,mealworms,superworms(as a treat), and earthworms(if I can I raise them for my compost). I am wonder what calcium and vitamin powder I should get and anything else I missed. Thank you all for your help.

    Generally looks pretty good, with the following exceptions:
    --try to get Repashy Calcium Plus and dust the feeders every other feeding. Don't keep calcium in the cage so they don't overdose on it
    --earthworms are probably not the best choice
