    I would say that yes, a fish would harm him. Leopard gecko stomachs are not evolved to handle fish, and based on my reading it looks like fish contain a protein that would be difficult for a leopard gecko to digest. So firm no on offering any fish at all.

    No. They have no way of finding fish in nature, so they're not adapted to eating them.

    Please DO NOT keep asking that same question in other threads.

    Both mine ate right away, hasn't ever fallen off. They eat anytime, if I bring it in front them
    I've had her for about 3 days. I have no idea her age, but I imagine she's pretty young. She's just 5 grams, 4 inches long. If I were to make a guess, I would say she's around 2-3 weeks old. Right now, I've only been offering crickets. Because she's so small, I'm a little nervous about introducing other insects. However, when she's around 20 grams, she will get crickets, mealworms, superworms, hornworms and possibly silkworms. Not all at once, though! My first boy has never denied food either! He's just 5 months old, and already 71 grams!

    She is actually scared of the crickets a bit. What should I do if she doesn't eat for an extended period of time?

    How large are the crickets? She shouldn't be getting anything larger than her head. Otherwise, like Seth9999 said — let her settle in. She'll start eating regularly in about a week or two. Meanwhile, don't handle or otherwise bother her.

    They're the size of her head or smaller. I guess she's just nervous. Thanks for the help!

    going outside and finding critters to feed your LG is a bad idea. Don't do it. Especially fish.
