I've got a leopard gecko in the largest one, but once she's bigger she'll go in with my other females. It's not got quite enough space because they should be in a 10 gallon or larger and the floor dimensions are slightly smaller than a 10 gallon. You need an under tank heater (DO NOT USE LIGHTS- it causes them to be stressed out, too dry, and can blind them) plugged into a thermostat to keep it the correct temperature, a probe thermometer- stick on the wall ones are useless. NO SAND it can cause impaction and death. They should be on paper towels or slate tiles. The wood chip beddings can scrape their bellies and anything small enough they could accidentally eat can cause impaction. They should have 1 hide over the heater (hot hide), one hide on the opposite side from the heater (cool hide) and a humid hide wherever it fits- some of mine are in the middle and some are over the heater. The humid hide can be a bowl with a hole cut in it and you can use wet Eco Earth. This helps them shed.
You'll also need multi vitamin and calcium supplements. I like Repashy Calcium Plus because it has everything in 1, so it makes it super simple. You just dust the food every time.
