The risk of impaction is so small that you don't have to worry if your geckos are happy and healthy. Many breeders have used sand for years without a single problem. A gecko would have to continually eat enough sand so it could no longer pass to become impacted. Besides just from the picture it looks like you have a killer setup. Especially sense it makes the cage look a heck of a lot better looking then papertowels. There are some people that use slate, but to me sand looks a lot better.

Your geckos look very healthy, the one that you can completely see has lost its tail, but it's completely back and very fat. 12-15 mealworms per is fine, I feed mine about 10 mealworms each and their fine.
