Hi all im sorry if i waste your time ut i was just wandering what all this, The Geckos should be over 2 years of age etc. Dont you keep them in the same viv? i mean do you split the male from the females and only unite them when theyre over 50g? i dont really understand this please help me.
Also it would be really handy if someone could flick up some pics of Leo Morphs or tell me how i can identify some.

since your only gettting your first gecko i wouldn't worry about breading for now. But obviously if you get a male and a female their going to, as such if you only have one female or the geckos are to young the male will try and breed with the femal more then likly exahysting her which often results in death.

How about going for a pair/trio of females and then later gettting a male if you really want to breed.

i've never kept leo's myself so only going on second hand and general info, im pritty sure they will bread most of the summer though you would have to incubate the eggs and if your lucky they will hatch.

yep any male of breading size and age can breed with a female regardles of age, same as anything really.

You will have to look at care sheets to get tank size's as i can't remember off the top of me head having never kept them.

make sure you read lots of care sheets.

i am sorry to say this but you dont know much about leos YET ............so why rush into breeding them now???id get one male or female or 2 females and then see if you think youll have the time to care for the eggs give the female extra care ext ext ext ...........like i say you dont have to rush into things theres leos waiting allover for example....
if you wait get 1 leo or 2 you find out there absolutly georgeus lovely bla bla bla THEN you look up and research for breeding you get a male leo around same as female and breed them i wouldnt suggest breeding unless you realy know what you are doing lots of problems could accur...may become eggbound ext.ext.ext
if you rush into things things start to go wrong :p its upto you but thats my opinion....if you need any information on leos care ext... just ask

thx for reading once again its your choice .
