    Not that I should talk. I'm terrible with photography. It is not my talent and never will be. I just take a ton of pictures in different lighting and props and hope at least one turns out okay.

    I don't think your problem is your geckos, it is the pictures. That new picture of Honey makes him look way better. The pictures are dark and the geckos look washed out. I'm not sure if it is a bad camera or lack of bright/natural lighting. Pictures are very important if you want to breed. Pumpkin and Lu-e look like they are probably really nice looking geckos. Get some photography light bulbs or take daytime pictures of them and repost. Make sure the sunlight is slightly filtered so there isn't glare on the geckos. I guarantee with better pictures you will get a great response.

    Here some better pictures of honey.

    I am not sure on what I want to do. Keep him and work on a project with him as I do adore this gecko. Or sell him and just work on my harlequin project.

    Thanks. I do have 2 more geckos but there very small. A tiger/brindle dal unknow sex. And a red creamy chevron I think unknow sex.

    For the group lu-e, lulu and pumpkin that is what I was thinking but was not sure. I was going for something creamy with dark sides I really love the look.

    Unfortunately I can't afford anymore geckos at this time.

    What should I look for honey?

    Honey isn't the direction I would take with the females you have. You'd want to use him for a yellow/orange tiger group or some patternless to bring out the color a bit more as he's not highly patterned. He does have decent structure.

    I'd give Dreamier some time to develop. You could then breed him to either of the females in 2015, or get a tricolor harlequin female as he's got some orange in his patterning along with the dark.
    +1 to everything Spyral said.

    And "Honey" seems to be the odd man out for me as well.
    I see the direction your project is headed, and while his Phantom Pin trait would work wonders for you, I don't really see where Honey fits in. Honestly.

    So almost 300 views and no real answer.

    Is there something wrong with my crested geckos that I shouldn't breed? Undesirable?

    All geckos are unrelated I made sure of that.

    I got them from really good breeders for a very high price.

    Though I will not be getting anymore unless I sell the ones I have and I do not want to do that ATM. Thanks.

    I would mix it up a little than what you have. Maybe try to aim for some different colors to your collection? They all kinda look the same to me with the exception of honey which looks a little creamier. That and I am not sure where you got them, but make sure that they aren't related before you breed them.

    Lulu is half fired and gets cream and dark brown.

    Pumpkin is half fired and get black and creamy/ orange some times pure white.

    Lu-e is half fired get black and cream.

    Dreamer is half fired and is in a shed.

    Honey- unfired and gets very nice yellow color.
