Every gecko on your list has it's own endearing qualities.
I keep and breed Leopard's, Fat Tails and White Line geckos. My favorite gecko to handle is definitely the Fat Tail because they are so docile. My Fat Tails are always a favorite at our "Reptile Kid's Club"(sponsored by www.wnyherp.org )each month, some of the children will hold them for 15 minutes or more. If you're going to keep a pair (male and female) be prepared because they will breed readily and before you know it you'll have 14 to 16 eggs from one female in one season. I have 6 females that laid 20 eggs so far. You could keep two females together if you don't want to breed them.

Good Luck with whatever you choose,
Bruce N
