      How Many Leo's In A Tank Together?

      Someone gave me 4 leopard geckos 10 days ago, and I already had rwo beautiful girls. So I now have 5 females and on male.

      We also just moved into our new house today. As I am getting the new place settled in, I am rearranging the tank I have kept my two girls in and have introduced two more girls. So far so good, though one of mine is blind from the sand I used to have in the tank.

      My question is how many can a 12" X 30" X 12" tank comfortably hold? On of the females I introduced is from this last year, so about half sized.

      Related is if I am asking for trouble to introduce the male into this tank, at least for a time?

      I'm pretty sure all the females would be fine but introducing the male will cause some friction and then....more leo's!

      To be honest..I wouldn't keep more than 3 females in that size enclosure long term. Females aren't as bad as males but they *can* get territorial if they feel crowded. Introducing the male for a short time might be ok but if he's a very um "active" male...he could keep harrasing the females and you will end up with eggs.

      Thank you two for your input.

      So far, the four seem to be getting along great. I have 3 hides in there, and one seems ever empty.

      And actually, I DO want to end up with eggs, to be honest, at least for one season. Have ever wanted to breed these, even if just once, just for fun.

      adding my 2 cents here, late, but still gonna add it. females, as with all geckos, can be unpredictable. we usually recommend each animal has their own tub or tank. i have 40+, and each has their own tub. they don't need a "friend" or a "buddy". they do really good by themselves.

      Thank you Nikki. This is helpful.

      I have farmed one girl out to a very excited young lady who seems to be doing quite well with her. So I now have 4 in a tank together. Two of these are sisters that I have had for 5 years, and have never had any issues that I can observe. The other two seem to do well also. I may yet farm out another one before long.

      My bigger concern at this point is getting my boy, Gastone, to eat! I now have him on heat tape, with the thermostat set to 86*F. He won't eat and looks so skinny. Still quite active. He is in an entirely separate room from the girls, so I don't think he is still in the mating mode.

      My recommendation is to up the belly heat to about 92. What feeders have you
      Tried so far? And what does he weigh in grams?

      I will try to raise his heat. Thanks for the tip.

      I have given him mealworms, superworms, waxworms, crickets, even tried getting him to lick up Repashy RescuCal+, but after an initial taste, he turns away from that too.

      He will still drink water though.

      I will have to weigh him and get back to you.
