personally I suggest you bring all the lizards back to the petstore you bought them from and get a refund for the animals. Then do research on the species you are interested in keeping. there are many good books on gecko species and tons of good information online. Use multiple sources, not just a single book or website, go to several sites, read the care sheets, take notes. Read older posts here in the forums for the species you are interested in. (this being the crested gecko forum and you are asking about fat tails and day geckos, which have their own specific forums here too.)

Once you have done all your research, find a local breeder or reptile show and make your purchase. This way you will have a healthy animal to start and everything all set up before bringing your new gecko home.

However if you find you just don't want to bring back the geckos you have, making sure you know what species you do have by doing google searches and comparing photos. taking good clear photos of the geckos and posting them here and we can help identify them too, even if they are not crested geckos.

in your description you indicated sand is sticking to your gecko's feet.....as fat tail geckos don't have naturally 'sticky' feet, only two things come to mind for the sand to be sticking. The sand is wet/damp so its sticking to the lizards feet or its not a fat tail or other terrestrial gecko, but indeed a crested or day gecko (which do have 'sticky' feet.) Further information about your current setup, size of tank, lights etc. will be helpful.
