    Hi all, i am C.Y. here. A newbie for gecko. Just wondering how to make my gecko grows faster. I love to see it to grow fat and big instead of those normal lizard which running on my house's wall.

    To each his or her own;

    Maintain the geckos at a temperature range close to but not past their optimal temperature range. (this keeps them hungry, active, and digesting food)

    Maintain your feeder insects at optimal temperatures. (this keeps them hungry, active, and digesting food)

    Provide the insects with a diet high in carbohydrates, diverse amino acids, low fat, and diverse vitamins and minerals. The insects need to remain well hydrated always. (high calorie diet with proper levels of nutrition supports rapid growth)

    Select gravid female insects for use as feeders when possible. (extra fat content) Second choice is freshly shed insects (in the white)*. (easier to digest)

    Gutload all feeders 18 to 24 hours prior to using them as food (reduce carbohydrate base portion of normal diet by 20% replace with calcium). (increase calcium content)

    *if found in gutloading bins feed as is, if found in breeding or maintenance bins dust with calcium and feed off as soon as possible. (insects will harden up within several hours otherwise)

    Feed every day, offer meals several times durring the geckos activity cycle. (single feeding times often result in lower total calorie intake)

    The above will provide your growing geckos with the calories they need to grow as fast as is possible. Any extra calories will get converted into fat.

    Having a storage of fat is ok on geckos, having excess fat is not. Keep an eye on them.
