You can find a good care on phantasticus by Mike Martin, probably one of the most experienced phantasticus breeders in the USA, here http://www.geckosunlimited.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5194

This is a passage from the beggining of the caresheet. I think it should answer most of your questions.

I often find myself not recommending people purchase satanics or leaftails in general. The reason for this is after a few years of trials and tribulations, but more so daily care and attention. One must realize the species cannot tolerate neglect. This means if you plan vacation, you must have someone competent with their care handy to watch over them. Neglecting to do so can cause unfortunate and unnecessary losses. However, reading what you can about the species, and analyzing your own abilities should help you determine if satanics are the right animal for you. They do not make good pets, nor do they take well to being handled often. These geckos are best appreciated visually, and most people strictly consider them a display animal.
