Where can you purchase these online? There are no expos near me.

Also, was wondering if these micros are quick movers, or a little slower, like the e. agricolae, and what and how much do you feed them?

I am just researching right now to see if they would be an option for me. :)

I love these guys! They do well in a 12"x12"x12" planted enclosure. Mine spend most of their time hiding in the cork bark, but I mist every morning and right after I mist they come right out to the front of the cage looking for food. I feed them pinhead crickets (up to 1/8") 3 times a week and have also used fruit flies. I have had to move them from one enclosure to another and in one case had to retrieve one that got out of the cage and have been successful.
There is a guy in FL who sells them quite often on faunaclassifieds.com. Also Ron Peteroy of Amped Up Reptiles (he has a Facebook page) often has them. These are both reputable guys.

So how easy is it to keep wingless fruit flies for one micro gecko? So far I've only been feeding my other (various) geckos several flavors of the Pangea CGD plus small to medium dubias.

Also, is an 8x8x12 too small of an enclosure for one micro?

I guess my main concern is keeping and providing appropriate food for one micro gecko...without having to go and order food every other week, or being overrun with insects that are more than one gecko would eat. Thoughts or advice? Otherwise, may just get another e. agricolae, as it is easy to feed them dubias and CGD, and they really don't get very big either. :)

If you do want a micro gecko, most big pet stores sell small amounts of fruit flies that come in a tube. I'm not familiar with dubias because I don't use them. If you're breeding them, the smallest ones may be appropriate. If you get crickets, you cold always order a bunch of pinheads and then feed the ones that get too big for the micro geckos to your other reptiles. Otherwise, just get the E. agricolae.
If you go the micro gecko route, the 8x8x12 is fine for one. The 12x12x12 is a bit better.
