    Based on your information it looks like you're doing everything right! It looks like he's been gradually putting on weight. And it's also a good sign that he's eating & defecating okay.

    So long...

    You can use it for a 20 gallon long aquarium. I use them on all of mine (20 gallons + 10 gallons) and have not had any issues.

    I'm pretty sure that by stating not to use it on an aquarium, they...

    Hard to tell, but it's possible. They can lay unfertilized eggs without ever being exposed to a male. Normally egg spots look a little larger but I suppose it could just be early in development.

    I've used a q-tip dipped in mineral oil to help loosen my own gecko's shed. You should be able to get mineral oil from any pharmacy or grocery store that has a pharmacy area.

    If she has bad eyesight it's possible that she can't see well enough to hunt successfully. One of mine is like that - I could put a mealworm right in front of her face and she would miss. So you can...

    I agree, it looks like a normal, aka wild type, to me. I think it would be a pretty safe bet to assume she is. The cool thing about them is they can have a lot of individual variation despite being...

    Rehoming probably isn't necessary, there are ways to make transportation with your geckos relatively safe. After all, people ship, and drive, with reptiles all the time. And leopard geckos can...

    Mealworms are fine. Remember to gut load and dust the mealworms with a calcium supplement before you feed them to the gecko. I'd give the gecko about 5 or 10 minutes to eat what it wants.

    So, if it were me, I would keep handling minimal for the first few days. For any animal, an unfamiliar environment as well as the moving/shipping process can cause...

    If he's so picky to the point where you're having trouble feeding him anything besides mealworms, he would probably not eat freezedried insects, although it doesn't hurt to try.

    I switched to vinyl tile because it's cheap & easier to cut.
    I used slate tile before as well, but I didn't like how thick it was, and you would have to have someone cut it for you.

    Well, I would have put the heating pad on the bottom of the tank rather than the side of it actually, unless you happened to have a really thick substrate. Leopard geckos need belly heat.

    Hmm, well males can be a little bigger than females, but it's unreliable to sex a gecko solely based on that.
    Their overall behavior is pretty similar to each other. Although male geckos are...

    Nothing too special in this vid, but one night my geckos were out and about so I decided to take some video footage. I couldn't resist making a video just to show them off.

    I had probably pushed the hide too far into the sand. Since switching to tile the entrance sits up higher, so that's fixed!
