    I am researching what is the best size cage and I have gotten mixed answers like 75 gallons, or 120 gallons, 40 gallons

    I'm currently shopping for a larger tank. I have one that's 36" x 16" floor space, and about 19" tall. For a lizard that can be 24" long, that is simply not enough, but it is so hard to find a glass tank with enough floor space. If you aren't looking for an all glass tank, and only need glass on one side, it's a lot easier to find something. All glass, well, I'll likely be building my own. I'll buy a table first, and build the wood frame and glass tank to just permanently go onto the top of it. I hope you find what you're looking for.

    Search for "critter condo" on ebay.

    Well, I called a local specialty store to see if they could get me a larger tank, and the reptile specialist said that they could get an aquarium that's larger, but the reason the big companies don't do those is that adult dragons don't move around all that much. He said he has known a lot of people who made the effort and paid the money to build or buy large tanks for their dragons, and always happens is that they just choose a corner, and stay there most of the time. Then the owner has to go to great lengths to heat the tank. So I just started setting things up to take Murray out of his tank more, but funny, he seems to just want to sit near an open window, soaking up the rays through the screen. I do let him roam around, as well, but he seems to roam until he finds another window to sit in.

    My tank is 36"x16", and I am looking for one that's 18-20 inches deep, but he said what I have is actually fine.

    Murray is sitting next to me on my desk that I moved up against a window, sun through the screen, happy to just sit and bask. Anyway, food for thought!

    As long as your taking him out and not leaving him in the tank all the time they are fine -- but the not moving around thing is false --- mine moves around quite a bit in his tank and hes in a 120 gallon or 4x2x2- I do get him out and let him sit in the LR on the back of a chair so he can look out side --- my window sills are not wide enough but he can see out good as I have a big front window--- the small tanks will stunt their growth and that is the reason they need bigger areas--- alot of people say it doesnt but there have just been too many people that have gotten dragons that werent growing and then getting them into a bigger tank and all of a sudden they are growing again --- coincidence maybe but it just seems to happen to much--- so as long as he is happy then you should be happy too --- they are a social animal and like to be w/ people and see what is going on --- :) - so the tank size hes in now looks to be a 50 gallon?

    Could be many reasons for glass surfing--- one he may just want out for awhile - or the tank is too small - or the lighting in the tank is not correct - or the tank is too hot --- you haft to narrow down your reasons for the glass surfing -- it takes a while to breed dubias - you haft to get your colony going and I never took the time to do it -- I have just ordered on line when I need them and usually order 200 at a time and keep them in a 10 gallon tank --- now I have males and females in that tank that are obviously breeding cuz I have baby dubias that I never planned but what ever I just let them grow -- what are you asking about watts for a baby ? temps 105-110-- it is trial and error w/ bulbs -- but you must have a accurate thermometer to get those temps -- they are crucial to your babies health --- digial probe or a infrared heat gun or both
