Ok, lots of stuff there in your email. Hopefully I'll get it all covered.

High humidity is best, at least 80% if you can. I spray mine 2x a day in the morning and evening. What type of substrate are you using? Try something that holds the water when spraying, that will help with humidity issues. As far as shedding, it seems like you were doing everything right. Try keeping the humidity up, and the q-tip with warm water helps with removing. I'd try it again if you can. The gray patches, I'm not sure what you mean. Could you attach any photos? It could be ripped skin that just needs to heal. Or it could be issues with the digits from a bad shed, in which case you should really try to get the skin off.

They like a 95F basking spot. I use a flo light, Reptisun 5.0 is good for day geckos. Crickets are staple. They also like mealworms, but only supplement. Also, supplement with some peach baby food, or any other flavors you find, mine pretty much eat any fruit I put in there. Just try to stay away from banana and strawberry they have alot of phosphorus (i think that is the one, or potassium) anyway, it inhibits the absorption of calcium.

good luck!
