I recently purchased a Gecko from my local pet store. It is pretty skinny, I’m wondering what the best way to get it to gain weight? It has only accepted food once in three days. Also, does anyone know what morph it is? Any help is greatly appreciated!

First, I would recommend taking a fecal sample to a vet to have it tested for parasites. This will help you rule out why your gecko is underweight. If you only got the gecko recently, there's a good chance it won't eat due to stress. Try offering feeders daily to entice your gecko to eat. To get your gecko to put on weight, add a few feeders to your geckos normal diet that contain more fat and protein. These may include: super worms, silk worms, dubias, black soldier fly larvae and more. Be sure to properly dust and gutload feeders. My guess is that you may have a tremper albino.
