    Question For a garg: 18x18x12 or 12x12x18?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I've been interested in getting a gargoyle gecko for over a year now, and I currently have the opportunity to get an exo terra for only $40 which seems like a wonderful deal to me. I have two options, however, a 12x12x18 or an 18x18x12.

    As far as I know, if I got the 12x12x18, I'd have to eventually upgrade to an 18x18x18 or larger as the gecko grows up, but would I have to do that for the 18x18x12? Or is that perfect for a garg, since they're not as high climbers as Cresties, and tend to stay lower down and wider out? Which one do you recommend me getting?

    Thanks in advance for any advice you may have :D

    I honestly think it can go either way. I find that gargs aren't nearly as active as crested geckos, so, while it's not my first choice, I will keep one in a 12x12x18 and that does give them the option of height. On the other hand I know a successful breeder that keeps his gargs in a rack in tubs that are no more than 12" high, so that could work too. Sorry I can't be more definite. It's pretty even to me.

    I would recommend the 12x12x18 over its more horizontal format. Gargs may not be as enthusiastic about climbing as cresties, but 18" of climbing space shouldn't be that daunting to them. It also provides a nice gradient of humidity and temps from top to bottom, which I think is especially important for gecko species.
