What age..

The lizards

Hey everyone! I was wondering what age should my hatchlings be before I move them from a tub to a tank? (Also, I heard that baby leos should be at least 8 weeks old before I sell them, is that true?) Thank you!

When I was breeding geckos, I would sell them when they reached 15 grams, though occasionally I would have a smaller one that was growing well, eating great and seemed to be "ready". By 15 grams it's clear that they're eating and have grown. Some of them are 15 grams by 8 weeks and some aren't so I think weight is a better way to go than age.
I think that once they are clearly eating regularly, they can move to a tank.

I got my leo at 2 weeks probably wasn't the best but, I herd that from when leos hatch, they don't need their parents.

They definitely don't need any parental care, but they do need the breeder's care to make sure they will eat and thrive (because some of them don't) before selling them to someone.
