I just figured Id throw up some photos of the other members of our little house here. We are constantly taking pics of the fish, they were demanding some attention as well.

This is my creamsicle cornsnake, Julius. He is about 18" long now and has a wonderful attitude.

This is my first corn. She(dont actually know its a her) is an amel corn. Her name is Peppermint.

This was the final corn I got. She is a snow corn. Again, I call her a she, but she has never been sexed. Her name is Lyla and she is about 12-14". She has never struck, but does have an attitude till you get her out of the cage.

Those are my 3 on custom made stands that sit side by side and have a thermostat running the heat for all 3. They all eat about once a week and are shedding on schedule at about a month each.



Next is my leopard geckos. I have 5 right now. 3 babies and 2 adults. Love these guys as does everyone in the house.

These are the 3 babies I have. They are fantastic and a riot to watch. Only had them about a month in a tank that was pretty much given to me, so seeing how it works out. I typically dont like heat rocks, but I use one cause Im using a UTH that Im not so sure on either. I have thermometers on both to watch for spikes.

These are the 2 adults that I feel I rescued from an antique store we happened to pass by. They had no clue, nor care, it appeared, about the care or health of these and just wanted them gone, so I brought them home and fixed up there enclosure. They are now off the sand and on Repti-Carpet so no worry of impaction.

Ok, now on to what I was given. I happened to be on CL and looking for fish tanks and ran across both of these next to members to our family.

First Ill show my Fire Belly Toads. I was given one, but have learned they really like having groups, so I went out and purchased 2 more and thoroughly cleaned and reset up their enclosure. As luck would have it, I met a guy who had a fish store and went out of buisness and sold me a turtle heater and a small turtle filter, so I had those sitting standby, so I put those in there. They seem to be very happy and have started calling each other. I hope we get babies. My plan is to get another 20L tank and put a watertight plexiglass divider in it to give them a true 50/50 land/water ratio, but this works for now, money being what it is.

Ok, next we found this next group on CL for free. A pair of hermit crabs and a 20H tank. Again, it was in terrible condition when we got it, so we took them home, cleaned everything and researched what was good for them and got it. They are on Eco-Earth now instead of gravel. We have added one more cause my wife fell in love with a shark design crab at Petno. Its a nice setup now that we all enjoy.

Lastly are the the 4 legged furry guys. We have 2 dogs and now 2 cats as well. They are all 7 years or older and been with us since shortly after birth.

This is my Sweet Pea. She is a pure-bred black lab and still acts like a puppy most of the time. She is my dog, and daddies little girl, and knows it.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]<SPAN style="DISPLAY: none" data-cke-bookmark="1"> </SPAN>

This is the kids, so it was told to me, dog. He is about 8-9 years old and barks non-stop, but a member of the family anyhow. Hes a good dog overall and we do enjoy him very much. His name is Cado.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]<SPAN style="DISPLAY: none" data-cke-bookmark="1"> </SPAN>

Now the 2 cats. First is my cat. Her name is Punkin. She is again, daddies little girl, the oldest pet in the house, and the overall "Queen" of the house. Most of the time I believe she thinks she owns us.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]<SPAN style="DISPLAY: none" data-cke-bookmark="1"> </SPAN>

And last but not least, We have Furball. He was supposed to be a "moving away" present to my step-daughter, but ended up never leaving, either of them.....

Thanks all for the kind words. I love having all these guys and gals around to add to our home. I thought I would add to this as alot has changed including a set of aquatic turtles I picked up. I was told both were Eastern Painted Turtles, but I think only one is, no clue what the other is. Im mainly writing this to tell anyone who keeps aquatic turtles about a product called, "The Turtle Topper" by Reptology, a division of Penn Plex. I purchased one and have it on my 55 gallon turtle tank and they love it. Set up is only too easy and everything fit together nicely and for a total of around $55 bucks, a great value, imo. It solves almost all of your major issues with having a turtle tank, basking area, place to put your UVA/UVB bulbs and heat bulbs, and even has a little platform under the water line for them to rest while swimming. Great product for the money. I am getting my Fluval 405 today for my turtle tank as well, so I will let you guys know what I think of that when I get it up and running for a month or so. I have never used a canister filter before, so this should be fun. Thanks for reading and I will keep you all posted as this tank gets more "finished". Jon

Your baby geckos look very cool. I also like the fire belly toads and have been thinking about getting a few. Thanks for sharing the turtle topper too I will have to check hat out.
