    Default question about sara housing

    So When I get a juvie sara, I am going to house it in a 12x12x18 exo, and I was wondering at what weight I should transition to a 12x18x20 zilla acrylic atrium, and also please tell me if I don't have to switch out of the exo, but I think I will have to. Thanks!

    Geckoholism comes in many shapes and sizes, for me, that shape is an adolescent who can't buy more geckos

    What is the weight on your sara? I kept mine in medium Kritter keepers until they were 10 and 11 grams. Then moved one into the 12x12x18 exo and the other into a 10gal on its side. They both are doing fine how ever it took longer for the one int he 10gal to begin eating again then the one in the exo.

    Now the other sara I have was in a 12x12x18 from 12grams till 25 grams at which time I moved him into the same acrylic cage you are talking about. And he took some time to adjust but is eating well again as well.

    Hope this helps

    I usually raise my cresteds, saras, gargs, and chahoua in bins than move them into adult enclosures. I go from roughly 6 qt bins to 15 qt bins generally. Somewhere around the 15 gram mark I generally move mine into adult enclosures. With leachies I keep them in bins until they are almost 45 grams.

    Thanks very much Joe and Charlie(can I call you charlie?)! I do not know the weight, it is not listed where I intend to buy, not going to divulge where because I have to wait until fall to buy I will probably email the guy before to know what the weight is, it is advertised as an unsexed juvenile, so I am guessing it is on the lower side because it is unsexed, thanks again guys!

    I kept my pair in a 12x24x24 enclosure, so I think a 12x12x24 would be plenty for an adult
