    Question Cage size/heat question


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey all! Iím currently preparing to buy my first Crestie here pretty soon at a reptile convention. I have all the necessities, however I have a question about tank sizes. I currently have a 18x18x24 Exo Terra tank, and I was wondering what is the minimum age/weight that a juvenile can be moved into this large of a cage? I know adults are fine with this size, however I just want to make sure that I donít have too large of a terrarium for a younger crestie.

    I also want to ask about heating. My house runs fairly cold, staying around 64 in the summer and 68 during the winter. Because of this, I bought a ceramic heat emitter w/ thermostat to raise the temp in the cage but not get it too hot. Do you think this will be alright for controlling the temp in the terrarium?

    An 18 x 18 x 24 is great for even a young crestie! Leave out several food dishes for eating options.

    A low wattage CHE on a thermostat set to mid 70s F should work quite well. Keep the basking area in the upper 70s.
