Leopard Gecko Starter Kit With LX24 Beech

Another option is this leopard gecko starter kit, which includes a Vivexotic vivarium and practically everything else you’ll need to set up your leopard gecko’s new home. The only issue we have with this starter kit is that it’s described as being suitable for two leopard geckos; however, we’d only recommend housing one gecko per vivarium.

You get a lot for your money with this vivarium – heating, lighting, a thermometer, a thermostat, a hide out cave and even a pack of substrate (although we’d recommend discarding this and using newspaper instead as sand can cause a potentially fatal condition called impaction if your gecko consumes it).

Like most gecko starter kits, this kit also comes with a care booklet to guide you through the initial stages of setting up your leopard gecko tank and caring for your new pet.

This kit includes:

  • Vivexotic vivarium
  • Pro Rep Reptile Heat Mat
  • Microclimate Matstat Thermostat
  • Pro Rep Red Spot Bulb 40W
  • Arcadia Ceramic Compact Lampholder
  • Exo Terra Dial Thermometer
  • ZooMed Proper Care of Leopard Geckos Booklet
  • Pro Rep Calcium Sand Substrate
  • Komodo Calcium + Vitamin D3 Supplement
  • Exo Terra Gecko Dish 2 in 1 Bowl
  • Exo Terra Hide Out Cave Small x 2
