2 males, hence the drab color of the 2nd one. Split them ASAFP before you have any casualties.

Even though they are getting along fine now. Who's to say that they aren't young males. In my experience with breeding geckos males will stay living happily together until sexual maturity hits. Also I've seen severly ill males live together until they were healthy. It also may be a matter of no territories being established yet. I don't keep this species and I have seen 2 male cresteds that lived together theyre whole lives in a lg tropical exoterra very happily and the owner still has them together both are over 10 years old and have never fought. But from what he says they were never introduced to any females. Do I think that works all the time? No. IMHO it's not worth the risk of them fighting one day and me not being there to catch it and one dying or being severly injured.

I also agree that they should be separated. These are your pets, why would you risk them being injured? They are not "friends"...and they never will be. One will always be dominant, the other will always be stressed. Just because the pet store did it doesn't make it right. Pet stores are the WORST places to look for proper care of an exotic animal.
