I gave mine cockroaches and it is not a good idea they are hard to kill and if he doesn’t eat them they hide in places crickets can’t fit.

Well mine did that with the first cockroach but then didn’t eat them. they like fruit I feed mine parts of a banana once a month also applesauce and stay a way from citrus fruits also I have not tried but the CCD might work or moths BUT NOT SUGGESTED UNLESS THERE CAPTIVE BREAD CUS YOU HAVE TO KNOW ALOT ABOUT THEM SO THERE NOT POISONOUS.

i got some wax worms to get him to eat something besides fruit because i cant tell if he is eating the mael worms... i know they`re fattening and if i feed him them too much he`ll refuse any other food...yes yes i know all that. but everyone says a goldie cant resist the sight of a waxworm but i guess mine can?? he stared at one as it went all over his enclosure but never bothered to grab it.... he`s crazy.. he chose fruit over wax worms!

Fruit tastes great because golden geckos literally have a sweet tooth what is your substrate and what kind of fruit was it
