Aww! He's so cute. Are you planning on keeping him?

Also his substrate looks a little dry. Common house geckos should have humidity, so I would recommend misting his tank to keep up the humidity.

Lighting, Temperature & Humidity

House Geckos will not need full-spectrum UVB lighting. They need a heat gradient ranging from 75 degrees F to 89 degrees F during the daytime hours. Keep the lights on for a 10 to 12 hour cycle. An incandescent bulb should be the lighting source, with a ceramic heat emitter or a heating pad used at night. During night hours, keep the temperature between 65 degrees F and 70 degrees F. House Geckos need a moderate humidity level. Keeping it around 60% should suffice.

I hope that helps.

Good luck with him.

yeah the bedding was way dry, I just cleaned the cage and took some pics before I mist the bedding. Didn't want to get my camera wet :). But thanks for the page it was helpful. I love looking up new info on anyting and everything(esp my pets). Yeah I am going to keep him. We were waiting to see if he would regain control of his legs but he never did. So now he will be a pet gecko. I want to get him more flower's & plant's but I need to let him get use to the grass & flowers I put in there already. Since he only has two legs I don't want to over whelm him with too many objects. Glad you liked the pics.
