I took what you said in consideration and agree about them being separate better for them to grow faster, so I now have them in these......

:I do not suggest housing them all together esp in a cage that large. I raise all my rhacís in small critter keepers (above) and move them up to larger cages as they grow. This way they can find food and water easily and there is no competition from their siblings. I find raising geckos (or any reptile) this way allows them to grow faster and put on weight easier.

:As far as large Rubbermaidís go, you should have no problem trying to find them (try home depot). I use the 15.5 gallon ones to hold each one of my adults. They are simple and cheap housing and I recommend them if you have a lot of animals. I use to throw out the lids and make my own using some lumber and some window screening (below). I now have them all in rack systems (below) that I custom built, and plan on building a few more. Anyway just a few ideas for you. Congrats on the new geckos =)
