Very pretty geckos. Congrats on the new additions. If I may make a suggestion, it would be ideal to ditch the analog thermometers and get a digital thermometer/hygrometer combo (or two).

they're cute! great choices, and I like their setup.
and, you may already know this, but it's really best to not house them together as juveniles, for several reasons?Morelia spilota harrisoni * Morelia spilota mcdowelli * Liasis fuscus * Liasis mackloti * Liasis mackloti savuensis * Liasis olivaceous olivaceous* Anteresia maculosa * Python regius * Gekko gecko * Correlophus ciliatus * Blaesodactylus boivini * Lepidodactylus lugubris

Thanks a lot. Actually I wasn't aware I couldn't house them together. I was only going to get one but I ended up getting a pair. Can you explain a bit?

yeah, sure. there are three reasons, really.
first, often one will grow a little faster and turn into a bully.
second, once they approach maturity, if you have two males they will fight, possibly even to death but definitely to injury.
third, if you have a male/female pair, they will likely breed before the female's body is mature enough to handle it well.
very young geckos can usually be housed together if you keep a close watch to be sure they're both eating and no one is showing signs of injury, but the closer they get to maturity the more likely you are to have problemsMorelia spilota harrisoni * Morelia spilota mcdowelli * Liasis fuscus * Liasis mackloti * Liasis mackloti savuensis * Liasis olivaceous olivaceous* Anteresia maculosa * Python regius * Gekko gecko * Correlophus ciliatus * Blaesodactylus boivini * Lepidodactylus lugubris

I'd hate to see them lose their tails. I know some people don't care, but one of the things I love most about cresties is their tails. Always a shame to see them gone.
