In the wild, Geckos enjoy areas of high humidity, under rocks or down burrows which aids hydration and shedding. When the Leo Life is sprayed with water or water is sprayed under hides, this provides the Gecko with an area of humidity where he may spend the day or night.
Ensure you have the correct substrate for your type of pet as some reptiles prefer a more dry environment and need substrate that reflects this.
ProRep Leo Life is used on the floor of wooden or glass vivariums in exactly the same way as any other substrate. Spread over the base of the vivarium to the required depth using rocks or wood to create an interesting landscape and different depths of substrate. If you are using living plants in your setup then it is best to keep the plants in their pots and then conceal the pots using decor.
When spraying Leo Life to create areas of humidity, then a deeper layer of substrate in these areas will help aid moisture retention. Do not over-water the substrate and avoid electrical equipment.
Leo Life should be spot cleaned daily, removing faeces along with the substrate around it and replacing it with a small amount of fresh substrate. With daily spot cleaning it is only necessary to completely replace the substrate every 8 weeks, or it if becomes soiled or wet.
N.B. If a heat mat is used under your tank then you should not use more than 1cm of Leo Life as more than this may cause the mat to overheat.
