Rated 5 out of 5 by Dragoncat The 50 gallon is great! The 18 is very VERY bad.
Hi everyone. I was wanting to talk about the tanks. You may be reading this and its only days old, or this may be months old. No matter the time this all is right.
The 50 gallon is perfect for all reptiles. Babies need smaller. ( well most of them.) You could put any smaller snakes in here. They would love to slither around! Bearded dragons would love this very very much. (It is ment for bearded dragons, but turtles, smaller snakes, geckos, and tortoises would be alright too.)
Plese listen to this. It is a very great tank ( or terrarium.) for almost every reptile.
The 18 gallon is VERY BAD. It could be used for one leopard gecko, and work out perfectly. Baby bearded dragons need a 20 gallon. This would be... okay.
Anoles, and amphibians (or frogs.) Need a taller one. It would be to short for them. If you are showing, or moving a creature this would be PERFECT!
So I hope you take this advice to mind, and use it well. Thankyou.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AngelRagnos Perfect!
So I bought the 36x18x18. VERY nice, I absolutely love it. The terrarium our beardie came with opened from the top and was getting to small for her. She seems to like it much better and so do I because it's a lot easier for us to get her in and out, and she won't be afraid a predator is trying to get her from above anymore.

Rated 3 out of 5 by keysdancer great, as long as you don't have to close it!
I bought this habitat because the top screen was metal, and the frame looked sturdy. I have both the 30x12x12 and the 16x16x12.
12 inches is too short. The sand scoop won't fit in it, so I had to buy another one.
The main problem is the locking mechanism. When the bolt is down, sand falls into the crevice. The next time the bolt is raised, the sand falls under it, and there's no way to get it out. Over time, the bolt no longer retracts enough for the glass to pass it. So I am forced to close these tanks with duct tape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LaVitaS I have 2 50 gal. And love them!
As a few others stated I'm not a fan of all the ways heat escapes from the tanks....... 4 out of 5 stars because this is a big issue. If you are housing a crested gecko or a Tokay gecko I'm sure it would be fine?
I picked up 2, 50 gallon tanks because I have a lot of reptiles needing larger cages. I am super happy with these!
I don't know if I really want to be moving these around but they are somewhat easy to figure out and assemble. I didn't realize at first that the side poles needed to be screwed in. I figured out the cable vent no problem.
My first is for my bearded dragon male, Wolfram. (Prepare for anime names!)
He's kinda a big boy so I made a huge enclosure he shares with 2 African side neck turtles (they have a turtle tank that has a shared basking rock and land access).they have been housed 'together' for about 6 months no issues. Wolfram only liked to steal their fish and got too cold being out to steal said fish. I built this tank in the enclosure and I've covered up the side vent and part of the top with tarp scraps to keep in the heat at night. During the day when the heat lamps are all on, he pushes the doors open and walks the tank and enclosure. When the night lights come back on and under tank heaters are fully on he goes back in and I shut the doors for him. Real simple and not a bad deal. I don't lock the doors because he's already in an enclosure and the tank is just there as an incubator for him.
Tank #2 is for my 4 Leopard geckos. (I won't annoy you with their names)
I started with one in a 20 long tank that became so aggressive I couldn't clean the tank. After getting him some older babies who needed a home I no longer fear for my hand and fingers. Unfortunately, now that they're all close to adult size, they don't fit in the 20 gallon anymore.
This tank is way too big? I plan on really adding plants and bark climbs because these guys like to get to the top and sides to tease my cats.
Again I have a heat issue!
I've covered the top with tarp clipping and put their light into the tank (because the tank is too tall for them to get good heat from so far up) but still can't keep as much heat. I think I'm going to switch from sand to tile and add some under tank heaters to the sides and hope that helps bring up the heat!
I might get one or two more tanks for my crested Gecko and to eventually house my Tokay gecko, but if I can't figure out this heat issue I just might have to look elsewhere.
Overall it's a good tank. I just wish NatGeo made a hood to fit this so I don't have to mod things myself.
