OK so about 3 months ago I bought ember glows and a sunglow from embergecko I have since tried to make contact with James but have not received contact back. The animals I got didn't look like the pics he had of them and the sunglow came to me skinny and laying eggs the embers are a little leaner then I would like but not danger zone. But since she came that way I put them all in quarantine separately. The ember glow female began to lay eggs as well as the sunglow female. On a weird thing I have where all eggs are incubated until shown to be dead I threw them in the incubator in there own tubs to my surprise I got a baby out of the ember glow box. She has never been with the male. Well I emailed james not mentioning that the female had not been with the male and asked him how to tell it is was a ember glow he never got back to me on that either. So I am at a loss $950 for skinny geckos that don't look like what I thought I was buying. Sorry kinda mad and hurt over this.

You know what, James from EmberGecko has had a reputation of doing this before. He used to live near me, I went to his house a few times and saw his facility (an upstairs reptile room) Nicely put together. With some impressive quantity and sized geckos.....but what I saw after that turned me off pretty bad..he laughed with his wife about an enigma they were breeding even know it had the worst ES I've ever seen..missing toes....just horrible..and they were breeding it to a DWARF GECKO that was deformed with MBD curled legs that could barely get around. I told him why would you do that? His direct response was "to see if I can hatch out something cool and make money on it". James is a cold hearted businessman who at first when I went to his house the first few times fooled me and made me think he was a respectable breeder that did the right thing. I caught him the same day as the enigma thing, well didn't catch him. He openly showed me how he fed the geckos color enhancing fish food to the worms and geckos. I don't ever try to bash anyone but this is not okay. He just did this to another friend of mine saying he only sells GIANT / SUPER GIANT geckos. Its non-sense. You can not tell if a gecko is super giant before its fully grown period. Or giant for that matter....also I've personally breed two SG together from RT Himself all of the babies did not make weight..I no longer breed giant or SG if you guys haven't noticed the last couple years...because of this finding..I believe its polygenic. Thats for another topic though, James sold this poor girl 3 geckos that did not make weight ... took HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS from her, I won't say the exact number Nikkie Can do that if she would like to but its close to 1,000 dollars..1 of the geckos laid an egg, the severely underweight one that hatched and was fertile..so its proof that he bred a female that he sold her so he could get a few babies from her first to make money off that too. Make money off everything, breed for size ... if not tell them it has size ...isnt that what you told me James....I Don't ever call people out, but what you're doing to our market, community and customers is disgusting. Lets hear a response please besides to seize and desist or we will hear from your lawyer because ill happily talk to him or her. You tricked me when I was young 4 years ago into buying a SG sunglow from you that didn't even make giant weight.....I've watched you put super worms with oats in the food dish so the geckos eat oats to get them heavy...Your a money hungry businessman. I get it you want to make a living...so do I doing this, but at least be honest...I Didn't take your advice by the way ....to breed for size and even if they didn't have the size say they do". I took Ron Tremper and Garrick DeMeyers advice to keep careful records and constantly do the right thing. Please comment back I want to know what you have to say about these geckos this time please "sir".?

Never done business with him but from the photos alone you can see this gecko was breed and shipped of without recovering first.
