    Hi
    I wanted to know how many meal worms should i feed to 1 gecko? Also should i only feed them the white ( freshly molted) or can i give the brown ones as well?

    You can give them either white ir brown, but white is best. And it depends how old the gecko is, some eat anywhere between 2 to 30 a day, so some night see how much your gecko eats if you keep feeding them to him one by one, and next time offer him a little bit less than this amount so he's not stuffing himself full but he's still eating a good amount for his body weight.

    Aust, Look in the next topic "mealworm Storage" for some ideas on gutloading your mealies.

    Also Unless the glaci-cricket gel says it is a gutload and supplies nutrients, it is probably just a water source for the crickets. The should also be gutloaded.

    Just my 2ยข.
