When I was overseas,in the pacific islands these little buggers were everywhere.I tried many of nights of guard duty to catch one,I never did.We had a different name for them concerning what there call sound like "love you,love you"except not love,ya know what I mean

Just an update on my wifes/my house geckos.We originally put them in with out firebellys which have a water heavy home .They wilted all this week.I don't think they ate,and they barely moved.Today ,I made a command decision and moved them to an unused 3 gal acrylic tank with dry bedding a used tank ornament and a flat rocked I warmed up and a jar full of hot water wrapped in a towel.They perked up within 15min and already have better color and they actually moved.I got them small crickets and put a few in there with them I think they ate 1 or 2.I know I made some bad mistakes with these little guys and it still isn't up to snuff yet.Tomorrow I'm getting them a heat rock.Any input about what else they may need is appreciated.Give me heck if you want as well.

I wouldn't get a heat rock. IMO they aren't good for your geckos.
Do you have a heat lamp on the tank?

a heat lamp wont work on the cheapo plastic tank there in at the moment.from what Ive researched so far I wouldnt worry about it,but my house is chilly.room temp is about 67deg.They are lookin good at the moment there heads are up and there movements are quick.If spring would hurry the heck up I wouldnt have to worry.Thanks squirt.

Could you get a better tank for them to be in? 5.5g glass tank at least?
