My brother has a leopard gecko and blue tongue skink. If no one is answering questions about geckos here, I think there are some gecko forums that you could join. I think a lot of people also keep blue tongues on this forum too, to answer your question about whether or not people on here keep other reptiles.

Ya I joined a Pangaea gecko forum had like 10 views on a post and people probably think its a stupid question but was just trying to get advice. I bought a gargoyle gecko and a crested gecko yesterday and have my Beardie as well so new to geckos

In regards to lizards, this is probably the most popular forum. Questions are normally answered immediately. What advice did you need that you asked for on the other forum?

Just wanted to know a good substrate to get for my crested gecko. He's a juvenile and he had substrate in the cage at the pet store I got him from so wanted to get something good and easy to clean up

What do you have now? My neighbor has a crestie and he just used reptile carpet. It soaks up water and is easy to clean. Just watch out because it can stain.
Coco coir might also be good. It can soak up water and a gecko like yours probably wouldn't ingest any of it anyway. I don't think it would be lethal if they did though.
Tile or something like that might also be good. That would be easy to clean. It just wouldn't be absorbent though.

Right now just using paper towels but want something that will hold the humidity better. He won't eat it since he's not a baby. But wanted something like wood chips unless there's nothing good or if it wouldn't be good for him

Hello,

When we had a leopard gecko in the past we would use a colored felt or paper towels.
I would avoid sand as they do tend to lick their surroundings quite a bit.
