Go with the grandis or "giant day gecko" I have several adult pairs that I have been breeding for a few years now and I love them!! They get bigger than most day geckos, but still only about 9" long. I find them very hardy and not shy at all. Mine will come right up and eat out of my fingers. They never run for cover when i enter the room, but instead stay out in plain sight where i can admire them. They will also hang out on my hand or arm without being frightened. The other 2 species you are considering are often Wild Caught animals (grandis too, be careful) and don't live too long. Giant day geckos are much hardier, less agressive and are easier to obtain (CB animals, that is)

Thats my 2 cents, hope it helps,

Joe
