    I just got them about 2 weeks ago.
    But I’m out at the moment so as soon as I get back I’ll answer all these questions. Thanks by the way. This means a lot that you’re all so helpful.

    Mealworms aren't very nutritious. I recommend starting them out on small crickets. Normally, the geckos should start stalking them immediately. Make sure you are keeping them warm enough, about 90f or so on the warm end.
    You will probably never see them drink from a dish.

    You're welcome, Brooke. Many of us love geckos.

    @Herpin Man Some additional info from you will be most helpful. I've never kept Coleonyx.
    1. Which species does Brooke have?
    2. How do you heat your Coleonyx?
    3. Is 90* a ground temperature?
    4. What are your cool end ground temps?

    These are all the supplements I have. I use the multivitamin once a month and I dust the crickets with the other 2 every other feeding. The crickets always are gut loaded with cricket crack and other veggies and fruits.
    No bullying by the way. They get along great. They cuddle a lot and have their own spots. Iíve never seen them fight or hurt each other and they have no fresh scars or anything. I honestly think the small one might be blind if you guys know anything about that? Maybe thatís why she bum a into things and doesnít react to sight and never opens her eyes all that well.
    Iíll take out the dish of calcium too. When I bought them the guy super misinformed me. He told me they are exactly the same as leopard geckos just a different pattern... what an idiot.
    Iíll try posting the video again too. I just wanted to answer those questions.
    Also I read about something called stick tail? Where they get white spots like the ones she has? Maybe thatís whatís wrong with her? Cause unless she was born with MBD thereís no way she could have gotten it at such a young age. Sheís so slow and deformed in her movement and her behavior that sheís always acting like she just was just born or mentally challenged or something...

    Western banded geckos
    And what’s a coleonyx?
    The temp is 92 on the hot end and goes all the way down to 72 on the cold end. They also have a humid hide in the middle that’s between 86-76 depending on the weather outside and it stays humid with shagum moss or however you spell it lol sorry.

    Click: vBulletin FAQ
    • To insert a video find 3 lines of choices at the top where you make a post. On the second line, 15 icons in from the left, you'll see a video icon. It looks like a ladder. Post your video URL right there. A picture and arrow like you may have noticed here will be displayed, not just a link.
    • To insert a photo use the "image" icon close to the "ladder" icon.
      • Click: Go Advanced under the reply box
      • Then click: Manage Attachments
      • Find pictures from your computer and upload them (after uploading your photos/video to a free Imgur account)
      • Grab the url they provide
      • Then click "insert image url" OR "insert video url"
      • Then paste & share

    Imgur offers free online sites for sharing photos.
    Yeah I know about the icons but it wonít let me upload the video straight from my phone. I didnít know how to make it a url. So I just upload it to imgur? Thatíll give me a url? Oh okay. Thanks!

    The site still won’t let me upload the video. It’s saying the file type isn’t supported. Let me try something else. Hold on.

    It looks like a probable birth defect to me. I can't see the white spots well enough to even guess at what they could be.
    Regarding species- If it's a Western banded gecko, it has an aberrant pattern, unlike any that I've seen. It could be Coleonyx mitratus, which is not a species that I've ever kept. I believe that care is similar, although mitratus may prefer higher humidity. Is there a photo of the other gecko?
    I heat my Coleonyx with heat tape. Warm end (ground temp) about 90f, cool end upper 70's. I shut it off in the winter to cycle for breeding.

    Thereís difference species of banded gecko that require different husbandry?? Damn.. I had no idea. That would explain why they never leave the humid hide except to warm up under the heat lamp or cool down in the cool hide. But theyíre always sleeping no matter what. Hereís a picture of the healthy bigger one...
