2 geckos in the same cage?
LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD
My girlfriend is from United States she went to pet store and has have blazin b-lizzard gecko [it is correct spelling with 2 "zz".] it is pink. the 2 guys at the pet store they both have look to say she is female. I have this lizard for two days but it is very small. 7 grams. I thougt the other lizard will bite so i put cardboard in the cage but nig he is very fat and not like cardboard so he went to the side for two gecko it happens with [ 1 | 1 ] but when he went to the side the number of gecko was [ 0 | 2 ] and he did not bite so i took the cardboard away.
My problem is will 41grams nig male bite the other 7 grams b-lizzard female?
And I have been keeping crickets since I have placed the new pink b-lizzard but it has not eat it is this because the other lizard? I have grab the mouth of the small pink and cricket in the mouth and eat yes but not alone.
What things should I do to make 2 gecko is healthey and fat? The pink b-lizzard gecko is need to become fat quickly it has come from pet store not fat or not healthey.

First off, it is blizzard, as in a snowstorm is also called a blizzard. Sorry to be so anal, but it was bugging me. Second, get a separate tank for one of your geckos. The size difference between 41 grams and 7 grams is a ton. The larger might not be able to eat the smaller, but there is still danger in keeping those two together. Third, the only way to fatten geckos up safely is to provide them with everything they need. Heat, food, shelter, and water. Heat keeps them active. Feeding them the correct amounts, without stress will get them to eat. My guess is the stress is what is keeping the smaller from eating. There is no way to cheat and fatten a gecko up quickly. It all takes time. A separate tank is a must in my opinion. No offense, but you may want to read the leopard gecko care sheets on this web site. They tell you everything you need to know.

you say it is danger to keep it? does this mean you are saying that he will bite the other? I have looked for a long time and they will prefer to stay together and to see the other but not to be alone. I dont think nig likes to bite the other he likes chicken and pork sometimes not beef but also he likes cricket and worm, but pet shop is expensive for cricket and worm. he has licks the other 7grams and he could bite if he please but he doesn't bite I dont think he bites.
You also say he is stress. but i prefer if the gecko likes to be touched you know is it bad to touch the small gecko of 7 grams?

Your bigger gecko might kill the small one or the small one could die from stress being in the same vivarium as the big one. Stress in geckos is not always obvious and the big one may be sitting on the small one to show it is dominant. Please please please get another vivarium for the little one it really is not safe keeping them together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can get a 10 gallon aquarium, a cover, and a UTH for around $40 from some places. That usually isn't too far out of reach for someone to pay for. And blizzard morphs often cost a bit more than a normal, so if your girlfriend could afford a blizzard, I think she could help you out with another tank and heater. Like it has been said before, and I'm sorry to be harsh, but it is not just a suggestion to separate them. It is a must. There is frankly too much danger. I have 4 females that weigh between 80 and 90 grams each, and a male who weighs closer to 30 or 40 grams. I still wouldn't keep them together, even though he is close to the same length as the others, and is starting to bulk up. Another problem you could have with them together is that the male could impregnate the female, and being as she is so small, she could become egg bound and die, or malnourished and die. Separation is a must.Post Thanks / Like - 0 Thanks, 1 LikesDebbie7054 liked this post

Also, feeding meat like chicken and pork is never recommended. They are too fatty, and do more harm than good. It also could potentially condition him to eat meat (and small geckos are meat) as opposed to insects. If worse comes to worse and you can't afford insects, find a secluded place away from pollution and pesticides and catch some grasshoppers or crickets from the wild. The one problem is that wild insects tend to be more likely to carry parasites. So that advice should be taken with a grain of salt.

OH MY GOD!!! They way you are keeping your geckos is AWEFUL! one 40 grames with one 7 grames together!! Feeding pork and beef??? WTF???? Are you trying to kill those animals???? a UTH costs about 13$ in amazon.com and in a hardware store they sell sterilite plastic boxes for very little, you can breed your own insects if it is too much to pay for them, that's acceptable, but don't feed them pork and beef, what's with that???? Please, separate those animals immediately, and start feeding them properly! they DO NOT want to be together, that's humanizating them, they live much better when kept alone, sorry to be so rude, but you got to my nerves, i have read some of your posts advising other people to feed pork and beef (or chicken, don't rememeber) to their geckos as well, and that is terrible advise!Saskia!

He is screaming because you are torturing him by spraying him in the face with water. These are living animals, not toys. You are making a lot of people on here very angry with your posts that are full of nonsense. I will not allow anyone who mistreats their animals on purpose to stay here on these forums.Ethan
