paper towel substrate two, cork bark , temp is 70-75 degrees, reptile cage, plastic neodenesha? glass front, vented top.
calcium supplement, mix it in food. a teaspoon is mixed into 1/2 cup superfood which is refrigerated. have had it weeks. at breeders it was in echo earth substrate.
it is misted daily, but not last two days, and 2 days ago temp was dropped to 60's because heater fell over. may have been overnight the most before it wass caught.
Calcium reserves not checked, fear of stress, losing tails holding them down. he is only about 2.5 inches
no runny nose wheezing. no open mouth breathing. threw up once 1 week ago

those pics were cat post, I see them on that question (unanswered) , not sure why they r here.
the geckos layed two eggs, they were layed on a paper towel, saw them with 24 hours, found lat night. have them incubating with proper humidity but they "still" look collapsed and not plump this am. Think they could just be infertile eggs?
two females are in with one male, housed together. I read keep them (crested at 75 degrees, you say higher?) and at 82 degrees you get females and 87 degrees you get males? so lower temp is best ? what about the caved in look.
read this:Incubators are an excellent way to keep eggs safe from unsafe temperatures in all months of weather. The exo terra incubator allows incubation at 70 degrees, perfect geckos. Large temperature spikes and drops during incubation can kill the embryo. Many hobbyists believe that incubation temperatures directly impact the incubation time and morphology of the hatchling gecko. Lower temperatures (68-74) extend incubation time, as much as doubling the number of days in the egg. With longer incubation times, the geckos hatch larger, with thick tails, larger tailpads, and more developed crests. Higher temperatures (75-80) equate to less time developing in the egg. These hatchlings are often observed with smaller tail pads, less-developed crests and an overall smaller gecko.
This is a picture of a lay box: http://www.pangeareptile.com/forums/showthread.php?37945-Whats-your-favorite-lay-box&highlight=lay%20box
I actually just checked and there is updated information on the hatching temperature which would be 68-74 good hatch in the Exotera Incubator but you will have a larger gecko but take longer at the temps of 76-80 it will be a ahorter hatch time, but you will have a smaller crested Gecko. The lower end temps with usually produce a female and the higher end temps will produce more males.
The exo terra incubator allows incubation at 70 degrees, perfect geckos. I hope this correction helps.
The information on hatcing and the best temps has changed since I last looked.
