:whats up guys. i acquired a crested from glades herp on my spring break back in may this year. it is an adult male and blah balh balh..... anyways i was browsing the pics on this fourum (i have to say, there were none that i disliked, all of them were great) and all the geckos look a lot thicker than my boy does. so, what are you guys doing that i'm not. i feed him apricot baby food with lots of minerall mixed in. he seem to eat a little every night, and sometimes will eat some off my finger. he will eat some crickets, and has accepted like 5 mealworms since i got him. he is active, no respatory infictions etc... he gas a big 20 gallon tall cage, with lots of foliage, and cypress mulch as a sub substrate. i mist him every day. the temp is almost 80 all day, and drops to about 73 at night. so what can i do to fatten up my buddy. thanks in advance.

If you want to bulk him up, feed more protein. Try to feed crickets a couple times a week. It may just be that he is not a great eater. You need to eat to grow. Try new things.
Good luck with him
David
