hello! I'm currently in the process of making a bioactive 120-gallon tank for my bearde so he can have lots of enrichment and I haven't done it yet because he has coccidia and I don't want the tank to be infested with parasites so where is the cheapest/best quality 120-gallon tank best for a bioactive? :D

You can turn any 120 gallon tank into a bioactive- do you want new or a used one? You can look on FB Marketplace for used tanks or Craigslist -- if you want a new tank you can order one from Zen Habitats or Carolina Cages -- those seem to be the most popular places for new ones -- there is a place called
https://talkingserpents.com/ I dont know of anyone has gotten a tank thru them
https://apcages.com/ same w/ this place
I just know if you go w/ some of these you want a tank that has at least a 18" height on it --

You dont want either of them the height on one is 15 and the other is 12 not high enough your gonna have issues w/ heating and UVB --
in answer to your question one is 75 gallon and the other is 60 --- but they need a height of 18" or 24"

I have 2 of them--- they are light weight and easy to move if you haft to move them-- my dragons seem to love the space --- make sure you get a T 5 for the tank or a Arcadia 12% desert bulb - it will need to go inside the tank because of the height --- if you need more help setting it up please ask

yes don't worry about me asking to trust me I ask way too many questions I'm also already using a 12% t5 Arcadia UVB 24 inch it covers his whole 40 gallon! so I'm good to go for now and also I won't get it until my bb is fully parasite-free! so it's going to be a Lil while :roll: :)

Ok that 24" will go right into the Zen -- I am using the same size fixture and getting ready to change out the UVB bulbs next month and the following -- going back to the Arcadia - I have Reptisuns in now -
