    Gecko entirely off mealworms / only wants crickets?

    Hi acpart, So, just when you think things are figured out, they're not. I tried feeding dubia roaches instead of crickets to my day geckos, because they just don't die as easily, and I can put them in a dish. But, they just sit there, and the geckos have no interest. When I was feeding little...

    Thanks. She definitely continues to grow. She just seems so bored. Lol. The first pic is the female -- second is the male. She's not smaller than he.

    Daily Activity

    Hello Again! So... Again, my male and female Day Geckos are healthy (I believe). They eat, shed, are growing, have a very nice home, etc. My concern today... I don't know what "normal" behavior looks like. They are approx. 9 months old. The female rarely leaves the front of the glass. She...

    Day Geckos Won't Transition to Dubia Roaches

    Hi! So, To quote the local "Bug Lady," Crickets are ego killers. I'd like to switch my Day Geckos from Crickets to Dubia Roaches, because they are easier to keep, and die less. I've offered a few different sizes, all small enough, at the most eight at a time, about five times, in their regular...

    Love Gilbert's home! I bet he will too! I was a Newbee in November. I learned fast through trial, error, and lots of advise on here! Welcome!

    Gutloading

    I do have food in with them constantly. My worry is how quickly the greens go "bad," if at all.

    Gutloading

    I guess as long as none of it gets moldy, I'm ok. Usually what's left is dry and I remove it while adding more.

    Gutloading

    Question... So, I've been gutloading crickets for my geckos, and mealworms for the blue birds. How long can I keep them with the same mustard greens/sweet potatoes? (I also use Rapashy powder.) I've been leaving them in a container with them for a few days. Well, actually, the mealworms make the...

    Don't Want Day Gecko Babies

    While I have you... Along the lines of Geckos being Geckos... I tend to always have Pangea available for them. They eat less than 1/4 tsp. of powder in two days. I use two varieties, and also feed then calcium covered baby crickets every other day. Safe to assume they won't overeat? Also, why...

    Don't Want Day Gecko Babies

    Hi All! So, the good news is that after a few months, a few mistakes, and a lot of advice, I finally feel like a competent, responsible Gecko "parent." They're only 7 months at this point, but when I bought my Crimson Days, the seller didn't want to split the male/female pair. I was happy to...

    Day Geckos Sleeping on the Glass

    Thanks! Always good and fun to hear other's experiences. I've never touched mine. The female is chill around me, the male runs. This morning I woke to the female on the front glass with her butt on the very top and her tail at a 90 degree angle against the top. UGH! I opened the other door and...

    Day Geckos Sleeping on the Glass

    I will! I actually split a piece of the bamboo, and it worked in my favor. It's almost halved most of the way down, with about three inches still round, I stood it up against the glass where they sometimes sleep upside down. I've seen them both go in there. Not enough room for their tails to...
