if they are from diffrent places or going with new gecks, you are ment to piut them in diffrent tanks for 2 months then into the main tank.

nope, think you ment to put them in a diffrent room. But a diffrent viv in smae rom should be ok.

Nice one. Better safe than sorry. You'll also want to wash your hands between touching the tanks. And if you start to suspect anything at all is wrong with any of them, then change your clothes between too.

Glad to hear you're quarantining. :D If nothing else, you can check the new ones are eating etc.

As has been said, make sure you wash your hands when doing anything between the vivs. That's good practise even when you've had them for ages, just in case anything should emerge later.

We use faunarium's or spare small fish tanks to quarantine ours, but keep them in the same room.
