Give them lots of room, and enough hides so that each gecko has one, plus a couple of extras. They look smallish still, so likely still young, and territoriality could still develop.

Do you have any specific questions or anything about them? They are pretty easy to care for and it's easy to find good care sheets about them online.

One thing I'd recommend is that you separate them if they are both males. Males will get along when they are young but usually start fighting as they get older. The fights can be pretty nasty & if one of them gets hurt it's usually pretty expensive to have them treated, since they are an exotic pet.

They are so adorable!! I've been wanting a leo for forever. You are so lucky you got them both, especially since they were free!

Very cute! Congrats on your new pets! I don't have much to add but I agree with Michelle about separating them. Males rarely get along once mature.
