 New leopard gecko owner questions and concerns

I have two leopard geckos one I’m worried about his tail isn’t really fat not sure if it’s still healthy or not the other is fine like I just fed them 5 super worms ate them all not sure which one ate them but they are gone they eat crickets do they both look healthy?

Nice leos...they look absolutly fine, the tails are for storing fat if I’m correct and they can go a while without food because of that but the more they eat their tails should get fatter. When my monitors were younger their tails weren’t really thick but as they ate and grew I saw improvement....are they acting normal like eating regularly,pooping and active?

Ya one eats fine I see it eat the one with the fat tail the other not sure but I fed superworms the other day put 4 in the bowl they were all gone not sure if that’s too much or what any ideas? Also they pooped them out whole I think I fed them to many but they move around and everything fine one looks whiteish since the superworm feeding

Waxworms are good for boosting weight but give as treats occasionally because their addicting to them but vary the diet like dubia roaches(excellent food source),night crawlers,etc... if anyone of them become lethargic,loose weight or stop eating suddenly see a reptile vet.
