Hey so I al interested in getting a Dwarf Sand Gecko but I am on a budget for the terrarium and cant find any good ones on craigslist near me. I have My eye on a 30x30x30 cm terrarium but am questioning if it Will be big enough. I have seen Some forums say its good enough but those were posted in 2015 and I don’t know if that is outdated. Any response is welcome

I'm not entirely sure which species you're referring to, but that enclosure size won't be anywhere near big enough. Any types of 'sand geckos' tend to need hot basking spots and you won't be able to achieve the right thermogradient in an enclosure that small
