    theres no set dimensions just eyeball it to whatever size youd like and can fit in your space. just make sure that if your gonna have 3 geckos in the same cage, it has to be 30gal at the very least. a 35 gal is about 18W x 18L x 25H(inches)

      1 cubic foot is roughly equal to 10 gallons.... very rough estimate but close enough to suit your needs.

      Most folks agree that you need bare minimum 10 gal per adult. Since Cresties are aboreal, an enclosure that is Tall rather than wide is prefered.

        groups = overrated unless you mass sell. Keeping indidvidually is the way to go IMO. When you keep them indidvidually you can pictures of both parents therefore you can give an educated guess on what the animal will look like. If you have a red male, green female, buckskin female, and slate female. The only thing you will know is that the male is red.

        For a group that size i'd use a cag about 2' by 20" by 16" or something.
