I have a few ball pythons who will be outgrowing their current houses in the near future, and I’d like some advice on who/what can move into their current houses, preferably long term.
I have a 10"x12"x20" glass aquarium (~10 gallons) (currently empty), a 12"x15"x24" glass aquarium (~18 gallons), and two 12"x12"x20" plastic tubs (~12 gallons). What can comfortably live in these houses through adulthood? I don’t mind keeping a baby in a smaller container for a little while too.
All of these set ups are pretty minimal at the moment, but I’d be interested in making bio active enclosures for a long-term inhabitant. Particularly for the glass aquariums, I’d be interested in using the tank as a base to build off of, but I’ve never made an enclosure before so I would appreciate a link to a good tutorial! I’m reasonably crafty, just new to building enclosures.
I’m particularly interested in crested geckos, sand boas, and hognoses, so I’d appreciate some feedback on which of those might be happy in these enclosures and what would be a good second species (so far, I’ve only kept ball pythons). I’m open to suggestions too, for something small, attractive, and easy to keep in a bioactive enclosure.
Thank you for the advice! Here’s a snoot pic of one of the girls who’s getting ready to move:
