Ok I've never kept day geckos so the best I can do is:

HOUSING: - the enclosure you've found is the right size based on care sheets

HEATING: I've given you my opinion on heatmats so I'd recommend looking at a different heatsource.

Make sure you get a thermostat no matter what heat source you choose

LIGHTING: It looks like they need full spectrum UV bulb but I could be wrong.

HUMIDIDTY: I don't think you need a fogger - the humidity they require can be achieved by spraying a couple of times a day. Put a basic hygrometer in the tank and if humidity regularly drops below 50% and you can't spray it in time then get a fogger. But between the two of you I can't see your hours being that much of a problem.

Some day gecko expert will hopefully spot this thread at some point
