    I recommend against housing crested geckos together. I think it easier to monitor health and food consumption this way. Housing singly also prevents bullying.
    That being said, some keepers house hatchlings together for a while until they start to become sexually mature.
    I simply don't like to put my animals in any potentially dangerous situations and prefer to be safe rather than sorry. I house all of my geckos singly.

    Much like what Yoshi said, bullying is all too common with housed together geckos, there's topics here where people have had hurt geckos because they thought they "liked eachother", but sadly geckos cannot communicate to humans so we have no way to tell especially with two males, males will surely fight, but if they are young juvi's you may not be able to tell their gender yet which makes it harder.

    You said you're getting a crested gecko tomorrow, is this another crested gecko or are you housing it with another species?

    Congrats on your cresties. I'm glad you're opting to house them separately. Better to be safe than sorry, right?!
    Have you picked names? They are cute little ones.
    The first one's morph appears to be a Buckskin and the second a Flame morph. They may change a little as they grow though.
