    I am going away today and coming back Sunday. (Don’t worry my sister watches the geckos when I’m gone.)
    The point is I will try to post the pic today but most likely I’m going to post the pic on Sunday because I am leaving today at 10:00 am.
    Thanks Elizabeth Freer thanked for this post

Another thing is I don't know what to do with the beetles that the mealworms turn into if my leopard gecko won't eat them. So, how much and how often do I feed him/her, and what do I do with the unwanted beetles? And how much should you give your gecko vitamin powder? ( I know calcium needs to be provided at all times)

He doesn't seem greatly interested in them unless they squirm a ton, they just can't consistently attract his attention for more than a short span, if that. Mealworms of course burrow under the Eco Earth making them inaccessible. He's had his first toilet break today too.

    I ordered some dubia roach adults to breed, just waiting for them to arrive and then produce. Has anyone noticed roaches causing a better feeding response because they scurry more?

I fed them crickets and they won’t eat them I can’t bring them to the vet though what should I do?
    Hi G.G ~

    I'm sorry for my delay. I quoted both tags above and your recent post. It's way better to continue on your thread here rather than on the dubia thread. There's a huge amount of conflicting information on the internet. Geckos Unlimited shares husbandry tips that work for many leopard geckos.

    Soft, freshly shed, mealworms may be alright for your young leo. I'd place them in a shallow escape-proof dish like this. Otherwise mealworms bury themselves Eco Earth's coco fiber substrate.
    I also suggest a feeding dish for dubia. Otherwise they will also hide in the coco fiber! I use Anchor Hocking brand clear glass 8 ounce dishes with perpendicular sides.


    1. Please share 2 pictures: 1 of your new leo and 1 of his enclosure.
    2. Young leos should be fed daily, just about all they will eat. Some people say feed: "all your gecko will eat in 15 minutes". If he eats a lot one day, he won't eat as much the next day.
    3. Well-fed crickets are great diets for young leos!
    4. Are your leos Kiwi and Pico still housed together in the 27 gallon enclosure? What dimensions?
    5. What brand and type of vitamin and calcium supplements have you?
    6. What is your leo's warm end ground temperature under his warm dry hide as measured by the probe of a digital thermometer?
    7. What is the cool end ground temp?
