Crested gecko hatchling enclosure size

I’m planning on breeding crested geckos and currently building a rack for the hatchlings. I’m wondering what size enclosure the hatchlings can live in, I was planning on 5 gallon vertical aquariums but I can’t find any anywhere since they’re all overpriced fish tanks. I’m wondering if tubs could work even though they don’t provide a whole lot of vertical climbing space.

We have been using 32oz tall deli cups for egg pair siblings, they work well enough. Then we bump up to the 6x8 Kritter Keepers

Do you use underbelly heat?

So long as your home is within 72-80°F you shouldn’t need to heat them. Extra heat can easily kill baby cresties.

Cresties do not need any heat. As Ashley notes, heat can kill. Not just the babies but the adults as well
