I saw this little guy at the shop and had to reserve him. He's a shiny boy, very iridescent. Gonna take him home in a month once his bioactive tank has cycled properly. For those of you who haven't see these, they are Madagascan geckos, their common name being 'Golden fish-scaled gecko'

For those of you who have.. Any advice? Some tips from experienced owners would be very helpful. I did as much research as i could (before i reserved him ofc) , but there's not a lot out there..

Fish scaled gecko update

Thought y'all might want an update, its been bout 3 months. She's settled in well (yep i'm pretty sure the shop mis-sexed them). I've named her opal. Would definitely recommend this gecko if you're into display-only geckos. I'd even say she's beginner-modrate difficultly to be honest.
She was very forgiving when i was having trouble wit her tank temperature in this blizzard we've been having. She'd still chase her crickets like a pro. Apparently she only ever ate hoppers in the store. But i hate hoppers. She changed to crickets no problem. And now i'm thinking of changing my main food source to dubias, so hopefully she'll like them.

Only downsides are she's still very skittish, but i haven't been trying to tame her so i should probably get on that. She doesn't eat crested gecko diet really.

I'm no expert of course, but i found a disappointing lack of information on these geckos online so I just wanted to add some stuff.
