    Default Leoprad Gecko Community Tank


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello all, I have been lurking around for awhile now and i was just curious about something. Community tanks...are they possible? For a large tank, like a 90-125 gallon i know there will have to be at least two heat spots, but is it possible to have 6-7 leopards co-existing in a tank that size? Just curious...and please don't flame me cause i tried using the search, but didnt see anything relevant.

    Would it be possible that in a 125, since it's 5 feet long, if you put the heat spots on each end that two males would set-up territories? I'm not sure how they react like that...anyone know?

    No, they would probably find each other and fight. I wouldn't recommend putting two males together in any size tank.
    You would also need many humid hides, or one big enough to fit all of them comfortably.

    I imagine there are people who have succesfully set up huge vivaria with more than one male, but it's risky. Someone on another forum set up a large, multi level viv for leopard geckos that looked great, but apparantly the geckos didn't do well in it; he's not sure why.

    Even females can get aggressive with each other. And others (both males and females) can get really stressed living in a communal set up. It's really a matter of having the right group of animals and the right amount of space.

    I have some of my breeder females together in a large enclosure and they do fine. I never have fights, all of them have good weight(I keep a weight chart and they get they're weekly weigh-ins). Major thing is I have lots of hides...humid and otherwise, so they don't have to be near each other or share a hide if they don't want to. I stack a few of them to so they can climb up into a higher hide. Even though there's plenty of hides half the time they'll bunk up together. But I guess it depends on the geckos, my girls are pretty chill.
