Leo's should not be housed on sand,as they can swallow it and become impacted.
Also they actually do not NEED a light.Sure you can have one,but if they get too much light,it will stress them out.And they do not need any UVB or anything.
Temperatures should be 85-90 degrees.If they are too low,you will stress the gecko out.You should use a UTH (Under Tank Heater) and not a heat rock.There should be a heated area and a cool area in the enclosure.
I am using all the things I listed above and she is doing excellent, being her sweet self. As long as sand is not colored, it does fine. And as long as it is a special kind of sand, they will not become impacted.
