Deciding On Next Lizard

Postby Deabrua » Wed Dec 25, 2019 9:17 am

What are some other lizard species that dont mind handling and can live in a 20G long (30"x12"x12") tank when full grown? Seeing if I can repurpose my beardy's baby tank without inevitably needing a larger tank.

Maybe a smaller species like a gecko? I repurposed my 20g Long into my roach colony =)

Currently it'll be the feeding tank so i dont have to fish left overs out of the main tank and hopefully poop as well, we'll see what I can get her schedule down to.

Still with parents who are anti roaches, even when it comes to dubias. Especially against breeding them, horribly afraid of an infestation.

I was thinking about a leopard or crested gecko but Im not familiar with them, hence asking here. I really want my next lizard to be an arboreal alligator lizard but they're too large for a 20G so that wont be this tanks next use.

Leopard gecko are the easiest to care for + to handle. They're adorable pets + tolerate handling pretty well after they settle in + grow a bit if you get a baby.

Leopard geckos do look adorable and IK they're easy to care for, Ive handled them before but not extensively.

As much as Id like the second lizard to be the arboreal alligator lizard after the research Ive done recently, this tank isnt large enough to repurpose into an adult tank for one (recommended from what I found was 20x20x30H") and this is only a 20G long.

On the other hand, Id imagine a leopard gecko being easier and cheaper in every aspect.

Uromastix is one I've been thinking about for a while.
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!
