Default Decisions! Decisions! Steno-Tokay-Helmeted???

Hi guys,
I am having a bit of dilemma, due to space reasons I haven't been able to get anymore lizards but now my SO has freed up some room around our home I can get another..…. But the trouble I am having is deciding which to get! Now I have done my basic research on each of these but I would like to hear from anyone who owns any of these and give me pros/cons hints tips and their own opinion and advice on which one they think would be the more desirable, I do hope to have them all once me and my SO move place, but for now im only allowed another one! apart from my Gargs im getting at Hamm in December

The 3 types are:
Tokay Gecko (im aware these are quite vicious and more of an admire from afar gecko altho i would try my hand at taming a juvi)

Helmeted Gecko

Stenodactylus sthenodactylus (I would get around 4 - 8 of these little guys)

Any input would be grand cheers guys!

Hey I vote you get 4 stenos and 2 tokays, that way you still have 6 lizards but a mix!

And get them tame?! It IS possible, just really bloody difficult! I doubt you will have a problem though you crazy lady

DO YOUR READING BEFORE YOU START BREEDING!

GlasgowGecko: IF you breed two animals and the resulting offspring exhibit reduced fitness, you MUST purge the system (this does not mean termination, but should NEVER be bred). This is the only way to get passed it.
