    Does anyone have any tips for the live food being crickets, locusts and mealworms, which I feed to the two leopard geckos which I have.

    I would like to know best way to keep them, like how to feed and what to keep them in.

    Any comments would be appreciated. Hope you can help??

    Thanks guys.

    I dont think they should have many meal worms because they are high in fat.

    Put all your peelings and offcuts into the tub with them, such as carrot and apple etc. They will eat this which in turn feeds the geckos.

    yep you need to feed the freshly moulted ones which are white, but providing they are fed well there is alway several to go at, x
