    no, the reptariums do just fine with regular misting. the only shedding problem i had with any of the geckos ive had was when they were in glass/ plastic cages. dont get me wrong, the exo terras are nice, its just that if i can get a tank 3X the size for 1/3rd the price, im gonna go for it.

    a large exo terra you can have 3 Cresties. They are making a new one. WHich is doudle the lenght of the Large and the same height. Which should be good. So Exo Terras are the best

    Yeah isn't it like 18x24x24? I saw one like that at the petstore, and I haven't seen those dimensions before.

    I remember the breeder we got a few cresties from is also a dealer for exo-terra. He said they were coming out with 2 new sizes and one for sure that I remember was 24x18x24. I can't remember the other one's dimensions tho.

    Go to www.petsolutions.com That's where I got mine and they aren't as expensive as some places. I LOVE both of mine...the front open is SO much easier.

    I emailed ExoTerra because I was curious about the new models: size, price, and availability. I'll let you know what I find out.

    i wouldnt keep 3 cresties in a 35 gallon. 20 is the minimum for 1 adult. if you have 3 in about hte space for 2 someones going to get stressed. also your going ot need to have atleast 1 other cage to seperate the females from the male for about half the year so they dont die from calcium defiency
