    Ideally you'll be dusting the feeders with calcium and vitamin D3. You don't need the lights at all since the gecko is nocturnal, as long as there's ambient light in the room.

    It's called a paradox spot which means exactly what you said: a spot that doesn't seem to belong based on the rest of the pattern. It's normal and it's probably permanent.
