    I personally wouldn't do it... about the only thing I have considered as a permenant animal resident in my tank is a praying mantis... and the Nepenthes are getting large enough that I don't think he would last very long.

    A praying mantis would be really cool!! where would you get one?
    I would worry about your gecko, it seems fairly large And as Unknownclown stated I would not like to see a big lazy gecko sitting on my precious plants. But maybe if your tank is large it could house a smaller reptile like a nole lizerd or one of those small house geckos

    Hey folks,
    A praying mantis? I imagine you could buy them as reptile food at some pet stores, but all I've seen are things like wax worms and crickets. In the summer, I'll usually discover quite a few around the house--I could send you a few(naw just kidding:))! But THANKS RamPuppy because that's a great idea. I'll try it as soon as I find one outside. I've even heard of being able to keep them alive indoors for over a year, if cared for correctly. They'd better watch out for my new N. coccinea, though!
