    Its best to have a constant supply of a healthy staple diet, like roach chow or the like.

    It's not normal for them to eat each other. Wing nibbling is somewhat common with adult males, but full on eating each other is a sign that they are not getting enough to eat and if they are not getting enough to eat then they are useless as feeder insects.
    Starting with 60 and now only having 5? Are you sure they are not escaping?

    This is a stupid question, but do you keep them as pets or feeders?

    Most people keep them has feeders. I do know a few strange people that raise them for pets only.

    For now I guess they are like pets since im building my colony and not feeding them off weekly. Once there is enough though, its open season as feeders for the geckos.
