Crested Geckos love to have places to hide, so decorating their enclosure is a must. Faux plants, real plants, cork bark and toilet paper/paper towel tubes are just some of the common basics. Other people have used clean ceramic flower pots, action figures, lawn ornaments, small statues, etc. So long as it is safe for the gecko, you can get creative with what you put in their enclosure. There are several kinds of substrates you can use on the floor of the enclosure. For juvenile geckos, paper towel is the ideal. It doesn't cause impaction like a loose substrate would, and it is easy to clean as you just throw it out and put a new one in. Once they have matured, other substrate options are safer for them to live on. If you want to keep it simple, you can continue with the paper towels, or switch it up with reptile carpet.
