    i just got a new 50 gallon tank for free 8) 8) and my mom got rid of her 27 0r 29 gallon tank so i put my anoles in the 27gl. I was wondering what would go good in a 50 gallon 1 or 2 thing thou. because i dont want to have like 10 anoles in two tank i want like 3 anoles in the small tank and 1 or 2 bigg things in the other tank. I also have 400-600$$$ to spend so price doesn't really matter.

    i guess what u mean is another good reptile to put into the 55 gallon. Well i guess if I was in this kind of situation, I would go with Bearded Dragons, they're fairly easy to care for and can have a very nice naturalistic steup, etc. If you want something for looks, though it would be harder to care for etc. I would go with a rainforest setup for a few [maybe a lot] of tree frogs. It would look really nice, but would need a lot of care. hope i helped a lil bit.

    come on get a couple of giant day geckos . They are cool And you could set up a nice tank for them with a tropical rainforest look.make more money breeding them than a leo.

    GO WITH A BLUE TONGUE SKINK- these are a kool reptile they are vey social and extremley lazy, and fairly easy 2 take care of, unlike a bearded dragon, bts(blue tongue skinks) have short stubby legs which makes them pretty slow, bearded dragons are quick ,just make sure you do ur homework on these lizards b4 purchasing one

    blue toungue skinks need a lot bigger of a tank then a 55 gallon when full grown. Atleast in my opinion. They are really active .

    55 gallon is plenty big enough cause one of my friends is a reptile breeder and he keeps his full grown bts in a 40 gallon and they r fine, but 40 gallon should be the minimum size

    You can't house two full grown bearded dragons in a 50 gallon tank. Well I guess you can but I wouldn't recommend it.
