How old or how big are your crested geckos now? How much are you feeding them and what size dish are you feeding them in?

Very young geckos don't eat alot of food so if you give them alot of CGD they could be eating it but the amount eaten just isn't noticeable if you give way too much.

For crested geckos under a year old and older than 4 months I feed about a quarter teaspoon of mixed CGD daily. I adjust how much I give depending on how much is left in the dish the next day. If its all gone, I add a bit more so there is always some left over the next day. (usually less than a 5th left over).

Having a digital scale that can measure in one gram increments is also very important. This allows you to weigh your geckos weekly or every other week, to measure weight gain/loss. Also check with the breeder/seller you bought the geckos from and ask what that were feeding. If they were doing the baby sauce method (which I don't think is as good as the complete meal replacement powders), you may have to mix a bit of fruit baby food with the CGD and slowly reduce the baby food, to get them to eat it.
