    Now that we've settled into our new house, we found a bunch of things here. Two are big tanks. One is a 93G and the other is 110G (1" Glass all around!). Mum has decided to take the big one for a terrarium (animal-less, lol). So I get the smaller one. It looks like a breeder tank, low and wide and long. It's a big tank, lol! So, my question is, next year I would like to add something to that, and I am wondering what you would recommend. I haven't decided if it will be in the house, or outside in a heated/cooled shed. It's one of those things that will be decided once the spring comes and I get to see how much space there is here (just adopted 5 Parakeets today from a local bird rescue, now we have 19 animals here). Thank you!

    They are indeed!

    93G:
    23.5" W x 19" H x 48" L

    110G: 18" W x 19.5" H x 72.5" L (this one is a custom made, 1" thick glass and heavy silicon making it one heavy tank!)

    You could easily fit all kinds of wonderful animals in there. My vote would be BRB, but I might be a little biased lol. You would definitely need to build a custom lid though, to keep the humidity inside. Most colubrids would fit nicely in there. A ball python of course would be perfect too. I don't have a lot of ideas for lizards that haven't already been mentioned, but I will say that is much too small for a water dragon. A water dragon will need something the size of a fridge lol.

    Bearded dragon, blue tongue skink, green tree python (that custom tank is definitely tall enough), kingsnake, milksnake, hognose, rainbow boa... I think if I had those tanks I'd have already filled them several times over!

    Water dragons and basilisks won't work. They need much larger, arboreal enclosures.

    Well, I've been thinking on it (thank you for the suggestions! I love reading on all of the species mentioned :D). Mum just told me my Dad is terrified of snakes, as is my husband. No one wants Tarantulas or anything "creepy". So I am thinking I may end up housing it in the shed (has electricity, needs insulation first). I can breed my own rats, gerbils or mice again (have done so in the past). I don't want any water-dwelling critters, simply after having so many before (CWD, Basiliks, RES, Australian Water Python, etc), I just don't have the funds to have the proper equipment for them. I've had pretty much everything, lol. I'm not sure about the arboreal snakes, since the tank I am using is low and wide. Beardies could work though. The lid would be custom made (solid wood with areas cut for the lights). I would love snakes again, but I'm not sure just yet ;) Hubby is already annoyed at the 5 new additions, lol, so I best not mention anything to him for a few months :p

    Haha, so I've decided to go with Beardies ;) Is it possible to keep two in a 93G? There will be a custom lid of course, to keep the heat in, humidity stable and unfiltered UV lights.

    Bearded dragons should be housed separately.

    True, haha, I forgot :p I may have to build a couple of custom enclosures so I can get a few beardies ;)
