Then I bought my 30 gallon and did a small African cichlid tank, a community tank, and a planted tank. The planted is where I messed stuff up. I almost caught my house on fire, I used a homemade sump, and wasn't taking care of the plants lime I should've. I turned it into a gecko tank with an albino leucistic leopard gecko and now have this which I will stick with till college. That's pretty much it
Holy poop! OCD much?? Haha and what happened to your geckos? They live for 20+ years! Uou better stick with this until at LEAST college with all this planning

Lol I don't really run too much, I run about a mile or two a day. Pretty pathetic compared to some people. And I've never punched meat, I kinda feel the urge to at times though haha, and I could never be cinderella man, too much of a beast.

Well, I'm on the app so I can't give you a link, but if you just type leopard gecko care on google it should pop up and have some great links. I really wanted a ball python but my mom didn't like the whole dead mouse thing lol. And you do kinda have to frag corals at some point or they will have chemical warfare on each other. I will most likely trade corals with my local reef club once a month and sell them on craigslist and my local lfs.
