hay i just got my first crested gecko yesterday, so far named it burny,its adjusted well to its 10 galleon and lives in a glass room, i have black construction paper on the back of the cage to not let it see its neighbor the JCP.so far has eaten 2 crickets. i was wondering how many i should allow it to eat. i did serious research on size of feeders and tanks conditions and such. but i fond nothing on the amount of feeder insects to feed the gecko.
quick rundown of my reptiles
i have 2 bearded dragons - rex /cera
1 jungle carpet python(JCP) named DRACO
just lost a 17yr old cornsnake -hiss
1 royal python- Monty
1 hognose - Cyrano
1 red ear slider-Aristotle
My glass room is used to house my family's exotic pets, reptiles and birds mainly, humidity is correct lvl in tank and heat is no issue as the room stays at 70-80 for the birds anyway. the dragons have a ceramic heat emitter and a full spectrum heat bulb. the snakes are good with the temps as is, so no extra heat for them(they are located next to heater on a 3 tier rack system in 55 galleon tanks this tier system reaches almost to the top of the room, the top most for my arboreal JCP. so next to him is burny the crested gecko.
i feed my dragons crickets and mealworms as feeders, (not much mealworms as they are a treat) , so not new to insects feedings and gutloading
my dragons eat about as much as they want in a single feeding (usually 5 -7 crickets large)
i understand about the crested gecko diet from raphsy, so i have made burny up a small bowel of this, and i have a dark feeding cage to feed burny insects in so as no light impedes burnys hunt besides some slits for air. i was actually impressed at burny's speed , usually slow moving , so he did a quick zigzag and nailed each cricket.
So my question is how much insects should burny be allowed to eat, i feel id just let burny have a insect feeding every other day. and allow as many as burny wants. but some expert advice or tips would be nice
