How Often Should I Clean Crested Gecko Tank

A crested gecko’s tank should be cleaned daily with spot cleaning and monthly deep cleaning.

Some even recommend a full clean every four weeks, or 10 weeks if you have paper towels.

Here’s the breakdown:

1) Daily

This is called ‘Spot Cleaning

Remove any food scraps not eaten, poop, and shed skin.

This will prevent mold and bacteria growth.

2) Monthly (or More Frequently if Needed)

Here’s how to do that:

  • First, safely remove your gecko from the tank.
  • Then discard the old substrate, and replace it with a fresh, clean layer.

Now clean the tank and decor!

 Use a reptile-safe disinfectant or a vinegar and water solution. Rinse very thoroughly and allow everything to dry completely.

After you have done this, re-assemble and reintroduce your gecko.

Let them settle back into their clean home.

Hope this makes sense…
