    Default Gecko questions!

    First question. How big does my gecko need to be before moving him to a bigger tank? Also is it normal for his poop and pee to have white in it? He seems to poop quite often too. Hope that's normal. Also how healthy does he/she look?
    Here are some pictures.

    He looks healthy. What does he weigh and what size tank is he in now? Yes it's normal for poo to have white. How often does he poo? Not sure what the last pic is.

    I think his tank is 12x12x18. His weight I'm currently not sure. He poops I'm guessing everyday. The second picture is one of his pee with white in it. Not sure if that is normal.

    I have a question about my crestie. I got him/her on saturday and he hasn't eaten from his food bowl yet but he will lick the food off my pinky. Will he/she start to eat soon? Also from as far as i can tell he/she has only pooped once. She/he is very young i would say about 1 month.Name:  IMG_4034.jpg

    It can take up to a month for them to start eating. They have to get used to their new home and learn where everything is. Plus, he is so tiny, you may not notice that he is eating. I wouldn't encourage him to eat off your finger; he can get dependent on that and then won't eat any other way!

    Just keep the food available, and fresh every other day, and he will most likely be just fine.

    Its not necessary to get a bigger tanks for adult crested geckos. My friend has one in the same size tank so i wouldn't worry about it. If you are really wanting to just get one whenever really. and now I'm going to cry cause i just saw my crestie yawn and it was adorable. XD

    I don't think my geckos poop everyday, but it depends on how much food is eaten. That's his poop? It looks very running, could you get another better picture? His weight also needs to be known. It's very important. At about 33+ grams he can be moved to a larger tank.
