    Welcome to gecko owning! There is conflicting information because there is more than one way to do things. Leopard geckos are nocturnal/crepuscular (out at dawn and dusk), so they don't need much...

    You're right, not a good fit. If you can fit an Exo-terra nano (8x8x12) or the next size up (12x12x12) you could get a micro gecko from the Genus sphaerodactylus. Check out the geckos at the Josh's...

    It's hard to know exactly what you're talking about without seeing it, but leopard geckos do use their tails to express different feelings, so this could just be a startle response.

    You could add to the gecko's vitamin D3 dose by dusting the feeders with calcium with vitamin D3 and then whatever you do with the lights is not so crucial.

    Sorry for your loss. Sometimes there's more wrong than we can see. The best we can do, as you've done, is to feed and support and see what develops (or doesn't).
