Hello all,

I am completely new to day geckos. I was given 2 geckos a couple weeks ago by a friend who brought them from Daytona Show. I don't know who bred them, but he told they also had some hatching in the show.

Well, the story with these guys is that they were pretty much forgotten in a small transport box over the fridge for quite a few months. It's really a shame. I saw them like that and took them home, my friend gladly gave them away.

So, I have quite a lot of doubts.

I skipped thru a few caresheets, but I am kind of a detailist keeper and found the caresheets insuficient.

Right now I keep them with a live photos, 4 inches of moss in the ground, 5.0 UVB tube, and a basking spot of around 120F.

I mist the cage every 2 days or so. Is that enough? Do they also drink from the bowl?

I am keeping them strictly on insects, dusted 3X a week. Is that OK? I know they also eat some fruits but is it necessary?

Can they be kept strickly with insects and vit/min dust?


This is the cage as it is now:


This is one of them. Is it any particular morph or breed?



And this is the other, a picture I took to show the femoral pores. I guess it's a female, but is it too early to know? They are 4 inches SVL:



Thanks, any help is appreciated
