If your other crested gecko is that much larger, then you should separate them immediately into their own cages. The smaller one will end up living in the larger ones shadow, getting less food, and possibly stunting itís growth or worse. Accidents are also likely to happen. It is very likely that the older one mistook the younger ones tail for food, which could happen again to its legs or toes. So please give each of them their own cages.

In regards to your smaller geckos missing tail, he will be fine. However as you may or may not know it will never grow back. It will not present him any problems thought, as far as eating, getting around, or mating. Just make sure the wound stays clean, and separate him from the larger animal.
