Photo of 29 gallon
I followed the steps on creating this from lizard landscapes so the structures are safe and non toxic
I decided there was not enough space for it in a 29 gallon tank (30 inches long x 12 inches wide), so I transferred the structures into a 55 gallon tank (48 inches long x 13 inches wide) and I built another wall (18 inches long) with a HUGE hide where the uth will be under and basically some shelves inside the hide for elevation, also there is about a 12x12 inch square of open space now. Would this be suitable for 4 leos? I've had 2 females living together for 4 years (no issues) and I recently acquired two juveniles (2-3 months old and are currently not living with the adults, not until they're old enough). One is 90% likely a female, and the other I'm not sure of yet. I posted pictures of him/her on a recent post. But, he/she is still too young to be determined. I would like to house all four together, but if that one is a boy I'll have to separate him (which is perfectly fine). All together there is 10 hides in the 55 gallon 2 moist hides, a VERY large hide where the uth is. The cool side is on the side with the fake waterfall that has 6 hides, 2 of which are moist hides. Thank you!!!!

I would not house juveniles with adults. The size difference could cause bullying and a competition for food. Wait until you're positive they're both female about the same size. I think a 55gallon should suffice for 4 females however!

Your terrarium looks good, just make sure there is proper belly heating for them. It's hard for me to tell if you have UTH setup in different spots for your geckos.
I do agree with above, juvies and adults don't mix well. Not only would you have to worry about bullying, you have to worry about juvies feeling intimidated & stressed out by larger geckos. So if you keep them separated until they are fully grown, it's possible you could place them together in a 55 gallon. There's no guarantee they will always get along so you of course would have to observe carefully.

Looks pretty good, if it were me i'd make sure the backgrounds were tall enough to cover the entire glass.

Yeah, it would make it look ALOT nicer. I wasn't thinking at the moment :P

The uth was originally on the right side that is why I did not put a foam grouted floor. I know housing juveniles and adults is bad, I have separate enclosures for the juveniles.Post Thanks / Like - 0 Thanks, 1 Likes

I would only recommend housing one gecko in this enclosure. The landscaping takes up too much space for 2 and it doesn't help a 55 gallon is so narrow. I'm glad to see you've put in good amount of effort into it. You may want to put a piece of paper towel in that spot for easy poop collecting.Currently keeping:
Eublepharis gecko 2.1.0~Hemitheconyx gecko 1.0.0~Gekko gecko 1.0.0~Pogana Vitticeps 1.0.0~Varanus exanthematicus 1.1.0~Varanus acanthurus 1.0.0~Blue Tongue Skink 1.0.0~Red-eared slider 1.0.0
Reptiles I have rehabilitated, rehomed or kept.
All above species plus:
Phelsuma Grandis~Rhacodactylus ciliatus~Paroedura~Rhacodactylus auriculatus ~Hemidactylus frenatus~Iguana~Turtles ~Snakes and too many more to name!
