    Question Terrarium Size Question


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello everyone,
    I just have a quick question. Right now I have two adult leopard geckos in a 24" x 18" x 12" enclosures. I was wondering is it really necessary to upgrade them to a larger size enclosure such as a 36" x 18" x 12" enclosure?

    Thanks!

    I think the most reasonable minimum size for 2 geckos is the standard 20 gallon long size, which is a little bigger than what you have (you have a 20 gallon high): 30x12x12. A 36x18x12 is always nice! Alternatively, you can build a second level for your current enclosure. I'm including a picture of my second levels. The geckos access them by climbing on the humid hide. I use a mini (5 gallon) under tank heater to heat part of the space up top:

    The second level looks really cool! I was wondering, do your geckos often take advantage of this raised platform?

    Some of them like to be up there a lot and others never do.

    That looks really neat btw. Also, meant to say that they each of their own enclosure which measures 24" x 18" x 12". Their enclosures are on a wire shelf unit which makes it a breeze for stacking and saving space. Also, helps with the UTH to allow air circulation. I might do what you made is by making a second platform so it gives them more climbing ability/options. Thank you again for sharing
