I have wild caught adults that were collected in 1994 that still look very good and are reproducing on par with my two year olds.... I would estimate 25 years at least for Cresteds based on the other species of Rhacs and their history.

Uhh average weight not life span. Sorry for any confusion.

Although I dont have an answer for you, I suppose that different diets while provide different results.
Im confused on your second question. The CGD mix is one part CGD and two parts water. For two baby geckos try using a bottle bap from a water bootle and fill it up so that only the bottom is covered. Then go from there and adjust.

Currently I have three Cresteds. One adult male eats (no matter how often I offer) half a teaspoon twice a week and three large crickets a week. He will only eat off a babyfood lid.
My other adult male would eat a full teaspoon every time I offered CGD in a small baby food jar lid (I only offer twice a week now, he got quite cubbie :) ) and up to five large crickets everytime I offer (also scaled back to once a week now).
My four month old eats 1/4 teaspoon of CGD (out of a beer bottle cap) twice a week, and up to seven very small crickets twice a weak. So on CGD night I mix one teaspoon powder and two and a half teaspoons water and 1/8 teaspoon mango baby food (the male that eats so little won't eat at all with out it and the extra water is because it so dry in my home in the winter that the CGD would be a brick in the morning without it).
Since I only have three and have only had them in the winter months I don't know if the low eating male will pick up once spring gets here or if he's the exception to the rule, but I end up wasteing alot of CGD with him and almost none at all on my little piggys.
