I keep my cresty's cage at 80 degrees during he day - and let it drop to around 70 degrees at night. (With mistings, two or three times a day). And let me tell you...he eat's like there's no tomorrow!!! He's even lunged at a cricket that was still on my fingers, while being placed into his cage.

Something else to keep in mind, is that cresty's are primarily NIGHT TIME ceatures. So they will be pretty inactive during the day, but do all their creeping around during the night.

In Christ: Raymond

:Take gecko kings advice. Your temps are a bit low, and might be the reason why he is not eatting very much. Raise your day time temps between 77-78F an your nite time temps between 72-75F. I try and keep my guys at a constant 75-78F, 24/7 and they eat like no tommrow. Hopefully by rasing the temps your geckos metabolism will increase and he will begin to eat more.
