    Default crested gecko tank size

    Hi I am new here and just about to get my first crested gecko and have a quick question. I am not sure what size of tank to get for one adult crested gecko. Does anyone here know what size would be best for a adult crested gecko.

    most people recommend 20 gallon tanks, I say a 10 or 15 gal would be fine for one adult. you're loofor height though not floor space. try looking at Exo Terras, theyre really nice

    Well, the bigger the better if your money allows it.

    I had Maxwell (my lone crestie) in an Exo Terra 18x18x24, which is fine for an adult. But I decided to spoil him and got an Exo Terra 18Dx24Wx36H, and he loves the extra room to explore. Plus the bigger it is, the more creative you can get with decorating it.

    Thank you for all the quick answers. I think I am going to go with the 18x18x24 tank because it doesnt seem to small or large for just one.

    I have a 20 gallon that is pretty wide. I like that I have more options to hang food dishes, put decor and plants in, etc. I actually have two trees that are meant for fish tanks in mine. They are sturdy and one has sort of a cave in it. There are also some artificial plants which are his fave sleeping spots.
