Question Suitable for Crested Gecko?

Hi,
I was recently given a glass aquarium that when stood on one end has the following dimensions;

48"tall x 12"wide x 11"deep
or
120cm x 30cm x 28cm

I know the general recommendation for an adult crested gecko is 45cm x 45cm x 60cm tall, however most people emphasize height for these guys.

Would this be suitable for an adult crested gecko with it being 4ft of height or would something wider and deeper be necessary?

Thank you

It's too small for an adult crested gecko. Although it is considerably taller than the recommended minimum size, of 45cmx45cmx60cm, enclosures it has around 4/5 of the volume. You still need to think of horizontal space with arboreal species.

Needs to be a bit wider and deeper. Loads of height tho.
