If you go to the normal monitor forum you will get more response. All of us who keep dwarfs go to the other monitor forum.

Go for an Ackie, Red or Yellow.
But you need to put a substrate dam behind the doors to hold substrate in. If you have room, use 10-12 inches. You’ll need more if you plan to breed. If you had to a rubbermaid container would suffice with a small hole in the lid for a moist hide box.
Also seal up that vent in the bottom and you’ll need to seal the door gaps better to keep humidity in.

Use 3/4" plywood and seal it with multiple coats of polycrylic or a single coat of epoxy.
