I forgot to ask: do you guys use any type of heat source for cresties? I've got a heat mat attached to the side of Gilby's enclosure. I know that the optimal temps for cresties are between 72 and 78, and they can tolerate drops into the 60's and increases up to 80. The only reason I use one is my room is usually a bit cooler than the rest of the house, which is at 73.

Hey Franky....
No worries. If Gilbert turns out to be a female just change the name from gilbert to Gilberta.

I never used anything. A UVB light is recommended though. It should provide enough heat to keep him warm even in the coldest area of the house.

Maybe one day I'll have a better camera in my possession; until then, the iphone will have to suffice.:/

I don't know what kind of morph he is either; I simply chose him based on his cuteness.

Aww, he's adorable! I think he looks flameish too, but it's hard to say now. His colors will probably develop a lot over the next few months.

As for lighting, I've never used it for heat. I had a UV light for one of the geckos once but after I switched up the tanks there was no place for it. It's a good thing to have though if you have the money for it. But it's not required.
