    im looking for some opinions on what to put in an empty 55gal tank i have. im really undecided between reptiles, and amphibians. im leaning towards reptiles but not entirely sure what i want. any personal experience with any reptile (excluding snakes...that make my GF freak for some reason).

    im tossing around the idea of a tokay gecko, gargoyle gecko, crested geckos, various anoles (specifically cuban night anoles), leapord geckos, white dumpy tree frogs, many many different tree frogs...as you can see ive really been throwing ideas around.

    any suggestions for new ones for me to research or ones you personally have kept and like let me know!

    I think a PDF tank or gray tree frog tank would be cool.

    PDF are cool, but ide rather not have to have cultures of fruit flies on hand. i know fruit flies are very easy to keep cultures of, but it wont work with my schedule right now.

    im actually heaving weighing on a tree frog tank. i had a corpus gray for a while, and absolutely love how whenever i was cleaning the tank he would jump on and hang out on my hand til i was done.

    Oh corpus grays are realy cool frogs. Have thought about spring peepers They are realy cool and there semi aboreal if you do get some make sure you get females because ive they can get realy anoying at night.

    I realy wish i could keep some frogs. I read about diffrent tipes of frong from time to time so that when i finley do get some frog i will know every thing about there keeping them.

    a 55 is a might big for a frog,unless you have a pixie(african bullfrog)even pacman's do not need that size tank.Bearded dragons are popular for one reason and that is,they get nice sized and are easy to handle.Iguana's are a bad choice as these get to large and are aggressive when adults.Green Ameivias are cool little predators that are related to tegus,but without all of the associated problems.Go to Kingsnake.com and get some ideas.

    in my opinion a 55gal isnt wide enough for a full grown bearded dragon. its not really about filling the tank as im looking for the real attraction of the tank to be the tank itself, not necessarily its inhabitants. i know a 55gal would be huge for a few corpus gray (i kept one if a 20 long for a while and that seemed to be more than enough room), but i think they would like having some room to roam around.

    very cool website i found a few that gave me some ideal and i went from there, i wish ide have found that one first though!

    I thought iguanas weren't always aggressive. I used to have one but gave it away it would not tame. I think it varies because that one was mean, but I saw a 5 foot one at some place (pm me if you want to know, because it is REALLY nerdy) and it was the coolest thing ever. I got to hold him, pet him, nicest thing ever. Even my foot long dog was more aggressive.

    More often than not it is the males that get mean.there are always exceptions to the rules(because of a lot of handeling).That is why most shelters and florida have a large population of these reptiles.Bearded dragon kits are much smaller than a 55 gallon.and tanks are not good ideas for keeping lizards in general,but to each there own.Look it is just like snakes,people keep them in too large of enclosures.most times snakes coil in a hide where they can feel the walls close to there body.(security reasons.)Then they just leave to feed or heat up.That is a lot of wasted space in a large enclosure,Lizards are a different story,mostly tropical forest dwellers,need the room to forage .climb etc..Amphibians that are terrestrial or semi terrestrial,I would be weary about putting with some other critters.The mucus is a toxic cocktail that can cause irritation to other inhabitants.

    i know the kits for them are smaller but me and my friend who is a herpetologist both came to the conclusion that a 55gal isnt wide enough, a 40breeder is a good size for bearded dragons though. i definitely will not be mixing species of amphibians!

    @lady that was actually the first thing that crossed my mind! but the framing on every corner of my tank is splitting and the top back side of the tank has a small crack about 2 inches long (its across the corner from the back right side to the back top side of the tank, on the back pane of glass, so im a little weary of putting water into it
