First off, I am by no means an expert on goldens, but my brother does have one. My admittedly incomplete understanding of their needs is that their diet is similar to crested geckos (omnivorous), meaning that crested gecko diet crickets would probably work ok for feeding it. They are arboreal like cresteds, so you'll want to provide a tall enclosure rather than a wide one, and they like higher temps than cresteds (upper end of the thermal gradient in the enclosure should be in the mid to high 80s fahrenheit - about equivalent to leos, but with higher humidity.) I don't really know much more than that. Hopefully that helps, and hopefully I haven't said anything grossly wrong; like I said, I'm not an expert with them, so if anyone else knows more and/or better than me, please chime in and help.
