Ugh finding info on these geckos is frustrating. I have read the book on Tokays by McKeon and Zaworski, which also covers Goldens. In that book they say a pair of goldens can be comfortably housed in a 20 gallon, which obviously seems not to be the case. They don't say anything about goldens not being able to be housed together.
Then I read a bunch of care sheets and I feel like they all contradict each other. One says these geckos don't need high humidity; others say they need high humidity; some say not to feed fruits/baby food because goldens can become addicted; others say to offer fruit foods at least twice a week.
Bottom line is that I bought goldens b/c I think they are under-appreciated and beautiful, and I would really like to breed them. I am definetly going to upgrade them to the big cage I have coming, because I agree my cage is too small.
Does anyone know of any breeders who have a lot of experience with goldens?

Thanks for all your feedback,

Jeff
