  • 5 Gal tank options?

    I have a 5 gallon tank sitting around, and I'm wondering what would comfortably live in it?

    I am under the same dilemma. I originally used it for young juvenile Tokay, but he quickly outgrew it.

    For an adult lizard, the options are pretty slim. Maybe a house gecko, mourning gecko or dwarf phelsuma, but even for those tiny guys it is a little cramped.

    For inverts, there are a lot of cool options. Arboreal tarantulas, mantises, and more.

      There are a lot of small terrestrial geckos that could do well in a 5 gallon. Gecko Time has spotlighted a number of them including Coleonyx (http://www.geckotime.com/opinions-on-coleonyx-geckos/), stenydactylus (http://www.geckotime.com/three-to-ge...stenodactylus/), sphaerodactylus (http://www.geckotime.com/keeping-sphaerodactylus/).

      I myself keep and breed Coleonyx which are very much like leopard geckos only much smaller and would do fine in a 5 gallon.

        A 5 gallon would be more than enough room for a pair or trio of Pachydactylus geckos, depending on the species. They're a lot of fun and very prolific.

            Now that you have had them for awhile do you see them much?

              Depends on which ones you're talking about. My cb juveniles are easily the most bold and will run out to get food if they're hiding when I open their lid. The wc adults are a bit more secretive during the day, but can still be observed in the evening hours and will also come running if food is involved.
