More than 1 female is usually fine. No matter what it is, some females will be dominant and fight with the other females. You just have to keep your eyes on them. No more than 1 male though.

I completely disagree. Gargoyles are much more agressive than Cresteds and I advise against keeping females together. For the most part Gargs of all ages and all sexes will fight and injure eachother if housed together. Even when you put a male in for breeding it can get dangerous with a very good chance that one of them will lose a tail at very least.

Well there is a very very good chance that they will lose their tails, female gargoylse are known for eating others tails... But I disagree with the above statement... Yes, this may be the case with some gargoyles as the case with any other geckos, but not all are this way. You just have to make sure you keep your eye on them and watch for signs of fighting... If this is the case you have to make sure you have room to put them somewhere else to seperate them.

If there is a very good chance of losing a limb, whether autotomized or not, then I see little reason to inflict such stress and discomfort on an animal simply to preserve space.

There is always a good chance of someone losing a tail, rarely a leg or anything, Iíve actually never heard of a leg going missing. But when breeding especially, theres always a big chance of tails going missing.
