My male golden gecko( gekko ulikovskii ) keeps biting my female one, he also does these weird barking sounds at night then chases her. what should I do? besides moving the female or the male to a different tank

you can see them here: YouTube - My newer set up with my two geckos!! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqmwlBzq0Z4)

try posting up some clear well lit pics of the vent area on your female. none of those dark, blurry pics from 2 feet away through the glass. your "female" is probably a male. we'll help you out and make sure you've got a true pair.

To add to what Kevin said. If they are actually a pair he could be trying to breed her and she isnt having it.

Doesn't look like a pair to me. Try to separate them.

Cheers!

2 males. Who told you the second one was a female?
Females will have no spurs, no bulge, and smaller pores.

10 quid on the pet shop.

did the clerk sell it to you as a female? If so you have some leverage - it wasn't what they sold you. explain that your male is now trying to kill the "female" they sold you and that you don't have room for 2 tanks. get your parents involved and talk to a manager if you need. no reason why they can't exchange it for a real female of even just store credit.

however, if you're the one that tried sexing it and they didn't tell you what it was you're SOL

take it back and demand a credit or a refund. don't be afraid to get your 'rents involved either. would you have bought it if you knew it was a male? no! they sold you the wrong thing.
