Size does matter

Not open for further replies.


I don't want an aquarium because I don't want to have to remove the top to get to my beardie. Having said that while everything I've read says at least 48" long hab for adult beardie I can't find any terrariums that long unless I want one custom built or build it myself. Help?

Yes, I've never found front-door type vivs except for the really expensive custom jobs, home-made enclosures, and one other place. sell front-sliding-door vivs in the larger sizes at pretty reasonable prices too.
I've bought 2 of the 48x18x17 tanks from them, and they've got even bigger ones available.

***IF you're in an area that they will deliver to, otherwise I'm sure regular shipping costs would destroy you.***

I'm sure there are other places that sell similar...look for actual aquarium shops, ones that build custom jobs.

Wooden vivariums are much better than aquariums and terraniums for a bearded dragon setup. They retain the heat much better and they dont get confused by all that glass! Also they offer glass sliding doors at the front.

Not trying to hijack the thread, but where can I find out what size basking bulb to use for my crossfire viv? I"m looking to build one VERY soon and am having a hard time figuring out what wattage bulb to use.

as for the original question, size is important to an extent. most 40gal breeder tanks suffice and they are only 36"x18" i believe. The 4x2x2 are really nice though and like the other person said, wooden enclosures will hold heat better and I think they just look better.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
