hey guys, does this look like an acceptable tank for underwoodisaurus milii?

my one main concern is that the ziploc container on the right side will be too high for the geckos to climb into--they are 3 inches high the containers, should i go smaller?

i also might replace the container on the left with this one:

The set-up looks fine. You might want to use a shallower box, but I'm pretty sure that the geckos will be able to enter it. Only one way to find out. I would also use catch basins that don't have drainage holes.

another thing,,,someone on a different forum said the hidebox on the left is too open which i understand but also said there is a lack of hideboxes--i suck at designing enclosures so im not sure where another hidebox would go

If you email your address, I will send you some catch basins, cut and ready to go. Since you have the room in the enclosure, you can add some other hides. Are you going to use a peat/sand mix for the nestbox?
