36"Lx18W"x18"H or 36"Lx18"Wx24"H; but if you have one adult Beardie, a 55 gal long or a 75 gallon are the best tank sizes if you are going to go aquarium style. If you have one of the front open cages, then 36"Lx18"Wx12"H or 18"H is a good setup due to lighting (these types can get a hood with alternate lighting than the aquarium, so shorter tank is better unless you plan on having the hood lighting and another dome light for heat source, with the ability to climb close to that deflector dome, then it is ok to go taller). Yes, bigger is better when getting a cage as noted by the others who have answered, but remember what type of animal you have. Beardies need high heat temps and having a tall tank requires additional lighting sources for heat. The ambient temp should be 90-100F during the day for the tank. Do not put the heating over the entire tank space though, they do need a space where they can escape heat just as they would if they were in the desert. The red light that is on at night, i keep mine on 24hrs a day, and blend it with the day light requirements for Vitamin D exposure as well as the spot heating. The sticky pads for heating under the tank sound great, but if you cannot control the thermostat, stay away from them as you can burn your Beardie...just like no heated rocks...you will hurt your Beardie. If you have a tall tank, make sure that you have a climbing source that is solid for your Beardie to get up on to get closer to the heat. One of the worst things you can do to a Beardie is to have a tall tank with great lighting and heat, but not have a way for it to get close to the heat. Also note that having a source to hang your lights on is ideal, as leaving them flush on top of the cage top and moving them each time you open the top will seriously shorten the life span of your lights. They have great options that clamp on the side of the tank or ones that have super duty peel-n-stick with an adjustable pole - this type is cheaper, but has just a slightly less adjustable option set than the clamp on ones, but they are cheaper and yes, the sticky tape is great, just prep before you stick.

The closest is the 36" x 18" x 18", which equals 50.49 US gallons, to figure out measurements to gallons is multiply the height, length, and width (depth) and divide that number by 231, i.e. 36 x 18 x 18 = 11664 / 231 = 50.49.

Since you said you wanted a Bearded Dragon the largest tank would be good for a full grown beardie as it is 40 gallons. So you can use the largest for a beardie for all of its life but if you want a 50 gallon you would have to make it because most of the tanks you find at pet stores that are 50 and up are TALL instead of LONG.

As a reptile (mostly lizard) enthusiest, a 10-20 gallon is fine for babies. They grow REAL quick and anywhere from 6-12 months old you WILL need to upgrade. Instead of spending money for the "inbetween" size tanks, go straight to the size the dragon will need as an adult. Most places say 40 gallon minimum, but beardies like to run, so I recommend 50 gallon (36x18x18) MINIMUM. They will need a tank that is more long than tall, but do have decor for the beardie to climb as they are semi-arboreal. The tank liners are best for substrate and should not cause impaction. You will need day lighting, night/heat lighting, AND a full spectrum UVA/UVB light. UVA is visable light to the dragon and UVB is NECESSARY for calcium and Vitamin D absorbtion. The tank should be kept at 85-90 degrees F minimum. Also, you will need a cricket keeper, and they can eat up to 20-60 crickets a day!!!. They are enthusiastic eaters, esp as juvi's. I would recommend NOT feeding them wax worms/superworms, even meal worms until they are 6-10 inches in length since this can cause impaction. Wax worms can also be fatty for the dragon. Food/crickets should be no bigger than 1/3 of the dragons head and no wider then the space between the eyes. Beardies are advertised as "easy" pets, but there is a lot of care and knowledge involved, and can be costly...so be prepared for a 10 year minimum commitment. It is definitly worth the commitment!!!

We have a 3yr old beardie in a 55 gal..he's 20" nose to tip. If you get a beardie just to let you know..they eat like a horse..we feed 10-12 dz crickets a wk plus his daily fresh veggies and fruit and snacks of super worms..when they poo it will smell about like chicken squat. make sure you have a lid, cause they can jump out of the cage. you will need full spectrum UVB and a basting light, We bathe our beardie 1x week in 75 degree water. We use an indoor/outdoor carpet, easy to clean and no risk of impaction. Beardies have a long life span, so it will be a major commitment. They are a great pet!!

You need to get it a 40 gallon breeder minimum when it is full grown. But when it is a baby you can provide a 10 to 20 gallon but once full grown a 40 gallon breeder is necessary. I have had my baby dragon for almost three weeks nw and she is the most hyper lizard ever. Make sure you get it a uvb as well.

the idea one is going to be the Large - X-Tall 36" L X 18" W X 36" H, water dragons reach about 2-3 if your water dragon is showing his crests above his head which he should be he is for sure a male water dragon which leads to the fact he will be 3 feet. Water dragons need a somewhat large bottom for the water fall in the aquarium followed by his "pool" for his fish meals and soaking. The height on the tank for climbing and basking as well and with 3 feet on him 70% of it being tail the big boy is going to need room.

The 40 gallon is to small for a full grown chinese water dragon. The perfect size is like the 36"x18"x36" or 36"x18"x24" no shorter then 24" they like to jump and they will rub there nose across the top of shorter tanks!

The 18"x18"x18" cage equals 25.25 US gallons, the 24"x18"x18" equals 33.66 US gallons. The formula is height multiply length (depth) multiply width than divide that number by 231 and that will give you the size in gallons.

Good luck with your new snake.

Absolutely not. The minimum habitat for 2 adult crested geckos would be 30 gallons. Most reptile enthusiasts would agree that reptiles prefer to be housed separately. You should keep track of their genders or else fights might break out. If both crested geckos are male, they will fight for territory. If one is female and another is male, they might mate constantly and you will be left with tons of eggs. If you decide to care for those eggs, then you will find yourself with a lot of baby geckos to take care of. If you keep two females together, this is not too horrible but you still need to keep an eye on them.

3' x 1.5 'x 3' = 13.5 cubic feet.

one cubic foot is about 7.5 US gal.

13.5 cubic ft = about 100 gal.

This product can only be filled with water up to the front vent holes. If you want to know how many gallon of water it will hold, you must know how high the lower front glass panel is and then plug it in to the above example. Also, be sure to subtract for any features (rocks etc.) that will displace the water.

Depends on the snake....some won't mind the large space of the 36"x18"x18" (which equals 50 US gallons) and some might only like the small space of the 24"x18"x18" (which equals 33 US gallons). If your pet likes hiding than a smaller one is fine, but if they like to explore and not bothered by much than the larger enclosure works.
