I don't have experience with leopard geckoes but they do need a hot half(86-90 F) of the tank and a cooler side (just above 73F) to thermo regulate. a undertank heating pad is the usual choice but lighting options can be viable until the proper equipement is in. some people here do have leo's in their care and will also reply. I took these temps from a leo gecko care site.
you should try to handle the gecko and drop water droplets on your arm/hand or maybe the leo's nose as the baby geckoes often need to be watered by hand. ive never had a baby gecko but ive seen a store employee hand water one. since its a baby and new they will need a period of time to get used to the habitat but they still would need to hand watered until they can do that on their own.
