Lisa,

You're very welcome on the advice And thanks for the compliments.

Geckogirl is right on about the inner thighs of the male being very orange, where a female golddust will just be light yellow. If the one you know for sure is a male is even tolerating the presence of the other one and not trying to kill it - its a female. If she is hiding a lot she may be gravid. Is she always hiding? Does she come out in plain sight of the male without being attacked? So long as the smaller one is eating and has access to heat and UV there is no need to separate. I'd guess you've got a m/f pair.

Joe

PS - laticauda breed like crazy! You should get her a sanseveria (sp?) to lay her eggs in. Heres what they look like (sorry -pic taken at night)
