    Thanks everyone I think I am going to up their food and feed more mealworms and waxworms (until they are putting on more weight) and less pheonix worms. I might need to up the size of their food also. They have been on small mealworms and medium pheonix worms. Their belly heat is fine and their poop is normal and they have both had fecal tests done recently which came out normal. They were both on the small side when I got them about a month ago so I am guessing I just need to catch them up on weight.

    Definitely use larger feeders. At 4 months old they should be eating adult size food.

    I should have said I OFFER them about 15-20/day. They don't always eat all of them and sometimes I skip a day if they are not eating many. But I generally feed the little ones daily and the adults every other day. It is amazing how much the juvies will eat (and poop)!

    I start the hatchlings out on med/large mealworms. I buy medium worms, in bulk, and gut load them. By the time they are offered to the geckos they are getting big and some start to pupate after several days.
