Well, ok...when kept together do they hang out close or try to stay clear of each other. I guess the main reason I would get another would be as a pal to the first (I of couse would like another for myself) but if adding a second gecko would not be a "good and happy" thing for the first I would just keep a single animal. I raise and breed Poison arrow frogs and don't have room for a Crested Gecko obsession...one tank is my plan :)
Thanks for the comments,
:I personally don’t think it really matters. Even though they have been shown to be somewhat social animals, they are perfectly capable of living happily by themselves. I keep all my animals each in their own tanks, and only put them together for a few months out of the year during the breeding season. Hatchlings are also all raised individually. It really is your own preference as setting up groups (as long as there is only one male) works just as well as single setups. I prefer the single setups because I feel there is less competition for food, shelter, territory, etc. In other words there are no hogs to worry about, so everybody is fat and happy…hehe.
