    This member on another forum said the tank maybe too big for the gecko or Geckos cause they might get stressed because they might not be able to find their food and Other things with the tanks size. So now i don't know what to do Should i go on and Get the one or Two gecko (When the tank is ready) Or go find a other species for the tank?


    Please post your thoughts.

    I have noticed what I call 'big tank syndrome' a few times. I think of it as them thinking 'Oh my God, this is too big for me! I must be food for something in here!'.

    It is really not a problem. For crested geckos they make little magnetic mounts to hold food and water that you can put anywhere on the glass, so once they find a place to hide and hangout you can put it right there. They will settle in.

    That looks like the giant tank we have at my work that we use for chameleons.

    Are you going to go all out and set it up with live plants, soil, branches, bamboo poles, etc.?

    as adults I would consider that a good size for 2 cresties. If the tank is to be heavily decorated and planted I would not worry about the "big tank syndrome." problem with big tanks and small herps is generally that the animals don't want to get out in the open for fear of being eaten so having lots of cover throughout the tank generally keeps them happy

    I would say try it out. If it seems to be an issue you can always set them up in a smaller tank.

    Make sure there are no gaps, especially around the door. They can slip through some very narrow spaces, especially the small ones.
