    A hearty welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    There is a crestie morph sticky right at the top of the crested forum. You could post there with your pictures .

    I would hope you will think of separating them very soon, so as not to breed them too young? or are they all girls?

    my cresties get diced fruit in their CGD fairly often. I've given them a little peach, nectarine, kiwi, banana, and mango and they do seem to like it I'm pretty lazy (I admit) so I don't generally go to a lot of extra trouble for these "treats"; I just cut a bit extra when I'm eating these fruits myself.

    remove it.

    put them on something else.

    then, figure out why he was eating it. was he picking out a bug? was there a little bit of food there?

    there is a TON of great information on this site and most of your questions can be answered by looking through the threads, or by using the search function.

    I use a container that's really too big, to help prevent any spills. it doesn't work if they upend the dish, but does help keep it contained.

    I've found the biggest issue with spilled food on a dirt or coir substrate is that you'll get mold growing in the spill.
