Males have two obvious bulges at the base of the tail. The females have nothing noticeable.

In a thirty I would only have a pair, maybe a trio (at the most). My pair is in a 25 gallon Exo-Terra Glass Terrarium (18x18x18).

Temp should be around 75, no more than about 82.

Diet is baby food (pear, peach, banana, a little turkey or something for protein). If you do just baby food you need to supplement with a Calcium/Vitamin D3 powder (I use Re-Cal's Ultrafine). You can also feed T-rex/Repashy Crested Gecko Diet. This is a powder that you mix with water to make a semi-liquidy food. This may need to be mixed with the current diet of baby food to get them to take it. The powdered Crested Gecko diet is truly complete and the only thing needed it they will take to it. They can also eat gutloaded crickets and mealworms.

I keep a water bowl out and spray with a mister water bottle daily.

They do not need heat (unless the rooom is cooler than most) or UVB (as long as they are given a proper diet that includes Vitamin D3).

I will be posting pics of my new cresty enclosure tonight, so check it out.
