Clean out the entire enclosure, and decorations, then put it back and add the geckos, that way its nones territory :)

I agree with Will's advice above. It will be like a fresh start for both of them. Do keep an eye on them for a while though. Just because it's male/female doesn't mean they won't fight...especially if he turns out to be an over aggressive breeder etc.

see today i bought this male, so I will quarantin him and check him for worms, and I will get them together on late june, what do u guys think?

and if they fight... should i give them a second chance, or it means they are not one for each other

Yes, if he's new, a quarantine is needed and a check for parasites in order. If they fight, separate them for a while and try again. A little fighting is no big deal. You just don't want to end up with any serious injuries.

I agree qt, break down and sanitize cage, introduce, watch for issues, and then hopefully watch for babies! When I get a new arrival that's a 3 month process.
