Anyone currently or planning to work with these guys? Looking for ideas for sources and my build. I would appreciate any tips or input. Thanks

I haven't worked with day geckoes in several years, but when I did, klemmeri were very prolific for me. I'd design a tank as follows:
High rather than long tank
Klemmeri can compress their bodies to escape thru the smallest openings--consider this
Use stiff leafed plants--pothos and samsevaria
Incorporate bamboo throughout--have several open end pieces for the geckoes to escape to/lay in
provide babyfood feeding station--could just be a small pill bottle lid attached
Basking area to warm up under a puck spot light

All of Scott's suggestions are good. Another thing I would add is that they're bodies are laterally compressed, so that they can slide into cracked lengths of bamboo (so they wind up in the internodal space of the plant) in the wild. Adding pieces with side openings allows for some interesting behaviors to watch.

These are cool geckos. Good choice!
