Hi Danny (continued 3)

Check moistness in hide every couple of days to make sure you don't need to add more water. I have discovered that sometimes I will find two geckos in one moist hide together. You decide whether you want one or two if three geckos. I would add a couple of rocks of which you can get color one (not smooth) too the tank so that they can rub on it if neccesary to help get there shed off, they will also eat there own shed of which is normal.

Yes,the 1.2 ratio of geckos is good. You don't want to put two males in one tank ever. They will fight, and sometimes to the death.

You will need a water bowl for them, you will also need a dry hide in the warm end of the tank, the moist hide will go in the warm end, if room you could consider getting two hides, your choice depending on space. Some people say to put a dry hide in the cool end of the tank as well, but I don't.

Food - You will need too put calcium powder on there food, it is so fine that it will coat the food. I use Rep-cal Phosphorus-Free Calcium with Vit.D, Ultrafine Powder. The Vet. had also said that you should use straight Calcium ultra fine. For example - I will have the crickets in the bag, put some calcium in the bag, close it and then shake the bag and it will coat them nicely. I will also put a regular medician cap of calcium in the tank, so that way if they need more they can lick it, and yes, I have seen my geckos licking it.

They don't need things to climb on that leave the ground, because they are ground dwellers.

Anymore questions, ask

Take Care
