    Default Divider Help?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I was given two geckos that were thought to be female by their previous owners and had been housed together in a huge beautiful tank. When I recieved them, I was able to see that they were actually male. I dont have enough room for yet another tank, the only reason I took them was that I was under the impression they were female and could be house together. I tried a divider and they somehow keep managing to escape to each others sides. They dont fight though, they just lay next to each other or even in seperate hides. This causes me a ton of anxiety because I heard that males ALWAYS fight, but I also feel bad seperating them because it just looks like they get along and kind of miss each other (call me dumb if you want, i dont care at this point). I dont plan on putting them back together, but i need a better divider than the one I made in a fit of anxiety.
    Is there any place I can find one? Or a way to make a better one? Also would supervized together time maybe curb the escaping?

    I would watch carefully for any bullying or fighting, but untill you can get another tank just make sure they aren't fighting, if they do then try and find a divider, from what I hear they sound as though they get together well, waht age are they? they may not be old enough to fight over mates.

    I was told one was an adult around 2 and the other is no older than 1. They have been housed together for 8 months previously

    they sound fine untill you get another tank, see if you can get more hides so they don't have to share.

    There are 6 hides. I dont have room for another tank, hence the need for a divider unfortunately.
