    Are they eating and defecating properly? If so, just keep at it because it's too early to tell. Not all geckos grow at the same rate, some are also bit of finicky eaters. If your husbandry is correct, and your feeders are gut-loaded and multivitamin dusted, then that's the best you can do. My hatchlings that I raise tend to hit 15g within the first month. But if I get a finicky eater, they do gain weight slower.

    You should be using multivitamin such as Repashy Calcium Plus or Zoo Med Reptivite with D3. They need more than calcium w/ D3 as dusting supplement.

    Are they housed together ? How often are you feeding the mealworms ?
