    Question Breeding pairs & morphs?

    I currently have two crested geckos, one male and one female. I have not yet bred my geckos (nor do I plan to breed them together because they are very different sizes).
    I do plan to get more geckos in the future, and potentially breed my current geckos- so I wanted some input on what morphs/colors you think would pair well with each of my existing geckos.

    My female gecko is not yet big enough to breed, but she's getting there. I would never breed her until she is the right age/size but based on her patterning and coloring what morphs would you breed with her?

    My male gecko is a full grown adult. What morphs would you suggest I pair with him?

    I know sometimes that crested gecko genetics can be unpredictable so if anyone has any examples of proven pairs and their offspring that would be great to see.

    I would pair the female with something just like her- a tiger with phantom pinning. Gorgeous babies!! She is very pretty!
    I'd pair him with some that has pattern- so an extreme? Or a dark colored gecko, "blonde" is what I think they're called. He looks huge, what does he weigh?

    Both are are tigers so I'd pair them to each other once they are both of size or find colors and morphs similar to them

    He's a little over 55g, thanks for the replies! I was thinking of pairing him with a harlequin or dalmation. My other gecko is only 31g, so it would be awhile before she's up to his weight, and she still has a bit to go before breeding anyway.

    I personally wouldn't breed them together. He looks a lot bigger then 55.

    He's 55.5g, I just weighed him again to be sure. But don't worry, I was never planning to breed them together. She is much too small in comparison.

    I believe you when saying that he is 55g, but he just doesn't look it. Maybe it's his length that has me. But once you give her time, she will get bigger. She's too small to breed to anyone right now.
