I am so sorry you lost your female Leo. I know you have spoken with Anna and I will try to assist you with this question.
Since you have a male I would not suggest getting another female Leo. unless you are planing on haveing them breed. Housing a male and female together is not wise. The male will consistantly breed with a female. When this happens, it is physically hard on the female as well as the laying of eggs shortens the life span because of depleting the calcium in the body. Two males cannot be housed together due to the fact they are both territorial and will fight to the death.
Leopard geckos are actually solitary and do not need company. They do very well being kept separately and can live a long life. My oldest female who was a rescue is now in her mid twenties and two of he offspring are in their teens.
My best suggestion is to allow your male to be housed alone and he should not have any issues.
If you need any information on husbandry or other issues, please hit reply and I will be happy to continue with you until you get a Satisfactory answer.
