i'm believe they are paroedura picta (pictus gecko).if you could get a better pic of the gecko itself it would be helpful. they are very hardy, easy to breed, quite interesting little geckos.

You do in fact have Paroedura picta. Give them a warm spot and a place to cool down, a hide on the hot end and a butter dish with a moist substrate (vermiculite, moss, etc.) . Feed and spray every other day and you'll do fine with them.

the substrate you have in the enclosure looks like it will be fine.
