So initially I was planning to spend a fifth of my scholarship on a digital SLR camera. But as always, a new idea entered my mind - I'm gonna get a new terrarium for my anoles.
Long story short, I ended up with 2 males and had to separate them. Each one now occupies a 10 gallon tank (one has a bigger one, but I don't know what it is exactly, so let's just say its 10) with their own little set up and they're generally happy. Until the second one got some eye thing anyways.
Either way, I was thinking of getting a 33 gallon tank from a friend so maybe I could house the two together which would make feeding and cleaning easier. Would that work? I mean, if I mixed all their plants and caves and rocks and branches into one terrarium it would have a LOT of hiding spots and I have 4 lamps right now, so that's like 2 potential basking spots and 2 UVB lights right there.
Also, could I maybe get a long tail lizard to live with them? I saw them live together at the pet store I used to work in, but then again, we might have been cramming them in together for the lack of space... so I don't know.
As for the terrarium itself. My friend has an aquarium (I can easily get a mesh top for it though) that's 30" high, 16 wide and 12.5" deep. Is that too high? Would you recommend a long one rather than a tall one? 'Cause if that's the case, I can always go to a pet store and search for one. I'm just not sure how practical the 30" height is. And how hard it will be to clean? I don't think my arms are that long... I mean, my mom's tank is about 20" in height and it's rather hard to do anything in there already (maybe 'cause it has water in it, but still).
Thank you! If you have any suggestions for anything, please let me know, I'm totally open to suggestions.
