Question What Animal Would Like This Enclosure?

So, recently I inherited some old, glass fish tanks from my grandparents. There are two of them, and I measured one to be about 24 by 12 by 16 inches (61 by 30.5 by 41 centimeters). I can't store fish in them because there are a couple cracks at the bottoms (which could be covered up by some thick bedding), which wouldn't be good for lots of water, not that I'm super interested in keeping fish anyway. I was wondering what type of animal this sized enclosure would be ideal for. For example, I doubt this size would be good for something like a ball python, because it's too tall. If anyone has any ideas about what type of reptile would like this area (snakes or otherwise), please let me know! I'm not planning on doing anything for sure, just doing some research about who would live in this sized enclosure. Thank you!

House, garter or rough green snakes come to mind (especially males of the first 2, which stay smaller than females). Anything little that likes to climb would appreciate a 20 gal high.

Anoles would also work, as might one of the smaller gecko species.

I wouldn't recommend housing garter snakes in the enclosure, as these snakes are very active, and should be kept in a minimum 20 gallon long enclosure. This is also a terrible enclosure for anoles, they are very active lizards and need much more space in order to thrive. This would be a great enclosure for a easy to care for crested gecko.

Crested was my first though. But I am no expert. That's what my 20g tall dimensions are and I have a tiny baby Crested in there now. It would be OK for some baby snakes but not many grown snakes. Maybe a rosy boa, sand boa, or a little hog nose.
