I think it sounds good...just check to make sure the extra small uth is getting it hot enough... Post some pics of your hides you made and all. Best way to see a problem is visually.

i was worried about tht.. it seems ok.. i need 2 measure the temp.

For temp measuring you can get a cheap digital thermometer for like $8 at reptilesupply.com for the water its no problem, i have had my gecko for almost a year and i have only seen him drink 3 times.
