    What you are seeing is called urates. It should be solid white and combined with the brown part.

    1. Do you provide clean water in a dish at all times?
    2. What supplements do you dust food with? How often?
    3. What insects do you feed and what do you feed the insects?
    4. Temperatures and humidity?

    Post a picture of this leo and enclosure. Someone can at least help point out husbandry errors that may be contributing to this problem.
    Currently keeping:

    Eublepharis gecko 2.1.0~Hemitheconyx gecko 1.0.0~Gekko gecko 1.0.0~Pogana Vitticeps 1.0.0~Varanus exanthematicus 1.1.0~Varanus acanthurus 1.0.0~Blue Tongue Skink 1.0.0~Red-eared slider 1.0.0

    Reptiles I have rehabilitated, rehomed or kept.
    All above species plus:


    Phelsuma Grandis~Rhacodactylus ciliatus~Paroedura~Rhacodactylus auriculatus ~Hemidactylus frenatus~Iguana~Turtles ~Snakes and too many more to name!

    @cricket4u yes i provide clean water at all times, i have never dusted my leos food ( i know i am supposed to but i have owned multiple lizards and never dusted their food and they have been fine with that), crickets and mealworms, 70-75 degrees farenheit, i make sure his cage is at perfect humidity.

    You did the right thing to come here and ask for help.

    I strongly recommend you read Leopard Gecko Caresheet (Eublepharis macularius)...demo video & 4 Jan 2013 update fully aswell as some other caresheets perhaps.

    There are a number of issues with the husbandry here. The link will help you to make the appropriate changes. (All credit to Elizabeth and contributors)

    I also think its very dangerous to assume that just because a gecko is alive that he is fine and happy. This is almost always not the case if his/her needs are not being met, they are a relatively hardy species and cant communicate to you when they are just surviving as distinct from being comfortable.
