No! Hermit crabs need a MINUMUM of 10 gallons, and need deep substrate. Ur better of getting a 10 gallon tank. But this is good for traveling.

I got the largest one for my 5 hermit crabs and I think it was a little bit too small I couldn't really see through it very well. I wanted to see them climb. I would recommend getting a ten gallon aquarium. That works the best for hemies.

It should be unless you temporarily have a large constrictor in it or escape artist. The main concern would be the large top door which must be slid back to be pulled open. But generally I would think this would hold just about any snake unless it's too big.

Short answer, no. Not if you intend this as it's permanent home. This may be used as a temporary cage for holding but not recommended permanently. Painted turtles should have a pool in which to swim in and a structure to dry off sunbathe and rest on.

You "could" if you absolutely can't wait to buy a gecko and you know you'll get a bigger enclosure. Obviously the sooner you get that enclosure the better, and it's recommended that you buy the enclosure first or during the purchase of your gecko. 2 weeks I'm sure it could handle that if really necessary.

Depends on how many crickets you plan on keeping in it. If say you take a few dozen crickets they should all fit just fine. Just remember they should have some structure like an egg carton piece and they'll also need food if being kept over a long period of time.

It depends on what size crickets you would be holding. If they are small ones sure, but if you are doing large crickets go with the next size up so they aren't piled on top of one another. I have 2 medium sized that hold 2 baby cresteds and the other holds both size crickets comfortably. The largest one is holding 4 baby gargoyles with plenty of room.

Short answer, yes, but depending on how big it gets you may or may not need to consider getting a larger / different setup in the future. Should be fine, I would think for it's entire or at least majority of life.

I've got a leopard gecko in the largest one, but once she's bigger she'll go in with my other females. It's not got quite enough space because they should be in a 10 gallon or larger and the floor dimensions are slightly smaller than a 10 gallon. You need an under tank heater (DO NOT USE LIGHTS- it causes them to be stressed out, too dry, and can blind them) plugged into a thermostat to keep it the correct temperature, a probe thermometer- stick on the wall ones are useless. NO SAND it can cause impaction and death. They should be on paper towels or slate tiles. The wood chip beddings can scrape their bellies and anything small enough they could accidentally eat can cause impaction. They should have 1 hide over the heater (hot hide), one hide on the opposite side from the heater (cool hide) and a humid hide wherever it fits- some of mine are in the middle and some are over the heater. The humid hide can be a bowl with a hole cut in it and you can use wet Eco Earth. This helps them shed.

You'll also need multi vitamin and calcium supplements. I like Repashy Calcium Plus because it has everything in 1, so it makes it super simple. You just dust the food every time.
