i would go with eco-earth or something similar to that, you should be able to get some from the pet store.

if it had black stripes on its head it was a Lygodactylus kimhowelli. commonly imported gecko recently...easy to breed but you need tiny crickets for the adults and fruit flies for the babies.

easy care...
peat moss for substrate. thin and thick branches arranged in all directions throughout the cage. UV lighting recommended and temperatures around low-mid 80's during the day. mist once a day, not heavily. feed small crickets, 1/2inch or smaller depnding on their size.
that's about it....

they are arboreal correct? Thus a tight fitting lid is necessary?

yes, they are arboreal and a screen is required. i'd recommend one with small screen holes. the small crickets can easily slip through the bigger screen spaces.
