These attractive dwarf geckos can be a bit aggressive, and are larger than some of the other dwarf geckos. I recommend at least a 12 X 18" tall cube vivarium for a pair. Larger cages will be needed for more animals, using plenty of visual barriers and multiple feeding platforms.
Environmental conditions are standard for rainforest species--80F ambient, 90F basking, humidity ranging from 50 to 80%. Mist once a day for drinking water.
Use plenty of cover--a well-planted, naturalistic vivarium is recommended.
Feed dusted 1/4" crickets, roach nymphs, and flightless fruit flies, and CGD or fruit puree.
These geckos can be skittish, so handling is not recommended.
One male per cage, multiple females ok with plenty of visual barriers and multiple feeding platforms.
