congrats, grandis's (IMO) are the funnest type of day gecko. here are a few things you should know:
15-20 per gecko when full grown
they eat crix and babyfood
have lots of live plants and hiding spots (snake plants and broms are good for this)
mist every day because they don't drink out of dishes or anythin
dust crix with calcium/vitiman powder 3 times a week
have UVA/UVB light as well as a basking light, if you have live plants the blue bulbs don't burn them as much
just dump the crix in the tank (7-12 every day) and they will have no problem catching them on their own, no matter how much hiding spots you have in there. i wouldn't put any food in for the crix cause they are usually all gone the next day.
you have to expiroment a little, if there are leftover crix in the tank just don't feed it, if you don't see any feed a few more of the same.
if you have any more questions feel free to ask cause i have one: the first pic is it's tank when 4 in long, then it's tank now and then a more current pic:
