Tank size?

My dragon is an adult beardie (4 years or so) and her enclosure is currently a 20-30 gallon tank. Will this suffice? I've heard that you need a bigger tank but I've also heard that you can keep them in a 20 gallon. I'm so confused.

20 gallon tanks are not a good size to keep a full grown dragon in --- please upgrade her tank to a 75-120 gallon ---- if you need help w/ ideas on where to find one a new or used on please ask and do this ASAP -- you have a very unhappy dragon

I was already considering buying one for her but idk if I can convince my parents. I'll look into it.

If you're unable to convince them to purchase a large enclosure such as one from Zen Habitats, perhaps you could convince them to help you build one. Building one out of plywood (following the general layout of the crossfire style enclosures with sliding glass front doors) might be a more affordable option as well as a fun project. There are a lot of good examples in the DIY section of the forum. A lot of people have been able to repurpose/modify old furniture to work well as an enclosure.
