    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?

    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 problems

    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.

    Shoot! All that reading I did and I shoulda paid more attention to housing two together any ideas on what to do until they can be housed together? I have a Kritter keeper too. I don't think I can take one back. Not that I'd want to but I can't afford another setup this one cost 450 :0
