    I want to eventually breed Leos, but I have a LOT of research to do before I come close to doing so. I'm "convincing" my Dad to let me get a gecko (or two). He's slowly begining to see the "light", especially since I told him mealies are good staple diets. :)

    BUT, I have a question. I used to own gerbils in a 20G long aquarium, which is now out out of use. I plan on using a thick white (unable to see through)plastic to divide the tank. Each gecko would of coure get it's own heating/food/hiding/water et cetera.

    Would this be acceptable? I don't want anyone ovulating or getting "excited" if you know what I mean (x

    A 20 gallon long SPLIT would be difficult to provide a temp gradient, adequate hides, and room for the leos. A 40 would be better.

    I would have to agree with Ken. While many sites and books say a ten gallon is ideal as a minimum size, I find it is not adequate for creating a decent heat gradient. It would be great for one leopard gecko though.
