We have just gotten our gecko and I thought I had done my research but now I'm paranoid because he's not moving around much or eating for a couple of days. While this pet is my daughter's, I will be ensuring proper care and will be the one buying food. The gecko came from the breeder with about 10 meal worms, which he (we think, not quite big enough to tell yet) ate that night. We also purchase some crickets, which we dusted, and he ate 4 or 5 (I forget) the first night. He would not eat yesterday or yet today, offering just crickets. I don't have any more meal worms here, but could get some tomorrow if that's needed. We have a bunch of crickets so I'd like to use them but he's not a big fan of them in his habitat so I keep removing them after giving him a chance to eat. His poop is solid and has the white bits. He has pooped every day since she got him. He's not coming out of the hide much at all. I read that is normal as they adjust to the new habitat. He was hatched in August the breeder said. I thought that made him young so he would need to eat daily? Temps are between 80-90 on the hot side, but I need a better thermometer I think. He's in a 10 gallon tank with the dumb carpet it came with as the substrate. When I put the thermometer on the ground it goes to the 90 mark. He has the lamps that came in the kit, a screen lid (I read that I might need a different lid to keep heat in) and an under-tank heater. In order to keep the tank nearer the 90 side, I need to put on both the night and day lamps during the day because our house is cold. She's anxious to hold him, and I'm anxious to get him accustomed to us. Any tried and true tips? Is it ok that he's not eating these two days? How long do we give him to adjust before we start trying to hold him? Attached is his picture. He's not as blue as the picture seems to show more of a purple.
