I recently lost a female Peacock day gecko after the owner of the reptile store i got her gave her some sticky antibiotics. She had been looking horrible and inactive.I thought it had been the male stressing her out in some way (She lived with a beautiful lg male peacock)or the fact that the humidity in their terrarium was too high at that point since it is summer. She choked on the sticky paste and died. I was devastated and and made sure that I changed the top of the terrarium (20gal tall) to mesh to add more air circulation. Now my Female Goldust day gecko ( who lives with a male goldust day gecko, father of her very soon to hatch two eggs) is showing the same symptoms as my late gecko.

Symptoms are: Lost of color, completely lethargic, will not eat, will refuse to move, barely moves to make krikets get off of her.

I isolated her because for fear that it might be contagious.

note: The weird thing is. Neither the male peacock or the male goldust show any signs whatsoever of being sick (the male goldust is even more active than before) I Just cleaned both tanks and washed everything with boiling water, changed substrate (h2o clay pellets, and orchid bark).

I am at a lost
