New Hatchling. Can you tell me what type? Pics!

Here's a picture of him and his home.
Can you tell me the specie? What do I need to feed him? Also, how soon can I tell if he's male or female?
Thanks in advance!
Edit: I forgot to mention, He did have a nice long tail, but it fell off after a few days for some reason. Is that normal?

I don't know why nobody likes my posts, but I guess maybe you can't see my pictures. Another forum said I better get rid of the sand I had, so here are some pictures of how it is now:
And here's a close up of him:
Am I missing anything?

i know he's not a leopard or a crested gecko! sorry i can't be of any more help, i'm a noobie too
and if you're trying to keep him off sand, just use paper towels, sans the sand underneath

Thanks so much for your replies! I think he's a Utah Banded too. What am I supposed to be feeding him? I tried to give him little black ants, but he doesn't seem to ever eat them. So far he has only been interested in water. Is that OK, or am I doing something wrong?I like my little gecko gal! She's Lexicon, my lovely little lizard lady. :)

I'd do my best to stay away from Ants as feeders, they'll more likely to attack your gecko and stress it out. Check with your local petstore and get some pinhead crickets, or at least some 1/4 inch crickets as he looks big enough to eat them.Looking for N.levis and P.rangei

Mealworms would probably work too if you can't happen to find crickets. Also, make sure to keep him warm. Get him an under tank heating mat at the very least. A cool gecko is a lot less likely to eat.Ethan

Alright. I'm looking to upgrade his tank soon too. Thanks so much for all your help. Is he too small for me to be able to tell if he's male or female?I like my little gecko gal! She's Lexicon, my lovely little lizard lady. :)
