Congrats with the new cresties - although you might be giving them a complex with names like that. Sort of like naming your boy "Ernie" - LOL.
I feed fruit baby food - banana, peach, tropical fruit, etc. They are cheap, so you can try stuff until you see what they like.
Recently, I took a hint from Hilde, who posts on here - and make my own fruit mix. I used two bananas, 2 pears and a mango. I jammed it in a mixer - skin and everthing (except for the banana peels, pear stem and inside core of the mango) - and pureed it - to a smelly runny-ness.
After TIIPPING some of THIS mixture over ON THE CARPET OF MY OFFICE (that's a whole 'nuther story) - I poured it into rubbermade containers - about 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep and froze them.
I found that I can easily cut a slice off of this mixture and let it thaw. My geckos seem to like it better than the baby food. Plus it's cheap and you can store it easily.
I mix a little calcium powder or some T-Rex Crested gecko diet on it ( I have some samples let over) and that's it.
Try it - just don't spill it on your office carpet.
