It's a bit small for a leopard gecko, as they are not climbers and need more floor space. Does it have a heat light? You'll need that for lizards. What about 2 small cameleons? Or anole lizards? Slate can be broken into smaller pieces and stacked to create a hid. Rocks too, such as a piece of flagstone, makes nice lounging for lizards. You could also go look at firebelly toads. They need a moist environment, so you'd have to put a water bowl of some sort in the cage, but could do some nice things with that. Playsand is a great substrate, which is so cheap to buy. Petsmart has all these types of lizards. Best of luck.

unfortunately, red claw crabs are brackish and need a bit of salt.

I've kept cresties before, and a 12"x12"x12" is to small - They need more room, even as babies, to move around. You could look into dart frogs, although I haven't kept them, I've heard that certain species can thrive in small habitats :)

DO NOT FEED BABY FOOD TO A CRESTED.

its very bad for them. if you must feed 'human food' use a puree of mixed fruit from the blender. available also is repashy, a powder diet that contains all the nutrients your crestie will require. supplementing with crickets as a treat is okay, just dust them with calcium.

a 12x12x12 would be okay for a baby crested but you would need to upgrade after awhile. another option is a gargoyle gecko (same diet as a crestie) but again you would have to upgrade as it gets older.
