    Default Enclosure size


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have a local reptile cage manufacturer that makes abs enclosures and I canít decide between the 36x20x13 or the 24x20x13. Either way I will be using flukers 11x17 heat pad and a jumpstart thermostat.

    This is for a leopard gecko? Definitely 36x20x13.

    I agree, my gecko is 6 months old and in a 36x20x13. It is a lot better to get the bigger one, because then clearly you won't have to buy a bigger tank when she is older.

    I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t setting my shy boy up for failure. I have been planning the larger one and upgrading them soon

    Similar to this?

    Actually your Leo should feel more secure without the excess glass reflection. It will also hold in heat better.

    This enclosure size is too big for shelf liner though, so I am not sure the best liner

    If you still wish to go with shelf liner, how about overlapping 2 or so separate sheets? Your leo won't mind at all.

    My boy likes to burrow under the liner if given the chance

    He feels more secure under tight spaces, makes sense. It’s ok as long as you have the ground temperature controlled(thermostat),so that he won’t burn. Make sure you’re providing hides with very minimal exposure( small openings).
