2 Males in one cage

I have 2 male leo geckos in one tank, they dont harm eachother or anything but I was reading that they shouldnt be in the same tank. I would separate them but one of my geckos stops eating completely if he is alone. They cuddle constantly. Does anyone have any ideas? Should I get a bigger tank? I really dont want to buy another gecko if I separate the 2 males.

Some people say that if 2 males are brought up together from when they're hatchlings and there are no females around they will be OK. In my opinion, this is playing with fire. I have had, on rare occasion, female geckos housed together hurt each other. Really, your best bet is to put them each in a 20 gallon. If you keep checking out craigslist, you may be able to find two 18"x18"x12" Exoterra or ZooMed front opening enclosures and then you can stack them. Those males could turn on each other at any time.
