Do you bean and electic blue gecko as in lygodactylus willmisii and a leopard gecko??

If so that answer is no as the former is a tropical gecko and the latter a desert. In fact i can't think of any gecko that could be kept witl L.willimisi, they are a very delicate and lovly gecko. But not for first time keepers and are very fragile.

They are leopard geckos and they are female
Well, a "normal" leopard gecko has a very different environment requirement to an electric blue day gecko - one is from a desert environment, very dry, and the other is from tropical rainforest.

I wouldn't house them together at all, no.

If for no other reason than if the leopard gecko caught the much smaller electric blue, it'd EAT it.

Just so you know a leo and L.willimisi not only live in entirely differnt conditions but the leo would happly eat a L.willimisi.

Yes, the "normal geckos" are female leopard geckos - but the Electric Blue gecko is not a leopard gecko, it's a type of day gecko.

As has already been mentioned, this would be a very bad idea, for a VERY long list of reasons, not least their husbandry requirements are very different. I would strongly recommend reading some relevant caresheets for these species, just to see how incompatible they really are.
