    If you get a fourth female, be sure to do the following:
    --keep the new gecko quarantined for at least a month. Ideally, have it tested for crypto when you get it and again at the end of the quarantine
    --be sure to get an adult gecko, not a hatchling, or get a hatchling and don't introduce it until it's adult size
    --introduce them after quarantine but watch them carefully and be prepared to separate them if it doesn't work

    Crypto is a very serious parisitic disease from what I know about it. Almost always fatal and HIGHLY contagious to other geckos. You can google it.

    Co-habitation is usually not recommended for Leos as it usually ends in conflicts. However, it can work as you have proven. But it is always a roll of the dice.

    I will say though, a 20 Gallon long is simply not big enough for 3 adult Leos. It is barely sufficient in size for 1, to be honest. Much less 4!

    They are in a 40g breeder

    Here is my article about my crypto situation. There is a link in the article to an informational article about crypto:

    Ah! My mistake. I apologize!

    Though my comments about cohabitation still stand. Leopard Geckos can be kept in multiples together but it is generally not recommended.
