Sorry, but this kind of seems like a no-brainer to me.
You are going to need cages and supplies for each of your geckos, an incubator of some sort, and food.
As for costs, that depends on how many animals you have. The more you have the more it's going to cost you to take care of them and their babies. If you don't breed too many so should be able to sell all the offspring, but if you breed a lot, you may have trouble selling the babies and they will eat into your money.
It is generally known that you usually do not make any money breeding herps. From what I've heard you sometimes don't even break-even. So make sure you have enough money to take care of all of your animals plus all of their babies (if you can't find them homes) and don't go into this thinking you can make a ton of money. I know you said you would be doing this as a hobby, but I just wanted to warn you.
