Question What is suitable for housing Leos??

Im not quite sure what would be the best to house leos. Vivariums are out of my budget, would fish tanks or plastic tanks do the job. Also, what size would be apropriate for 2 Leos.

Thanks, any replies would be apreciated

A cheap alternative but it doesnt look very pretty is a 50L rub (really useful box), drill a few holes in it for ventilation, pop a heat mat on a stat under one end. Then put all you stuff in and away you go. Could then save up for a viv that looks nicer but a lot of breeders keep there leos in them all the time.
You can get them from argos, staples or online directly from this site Go Shopping - Really Useful Boxes - 50 litre Really Useful Box

I keep my Leo in a 2ft fish tank and have had no problems.
The tank did not cost much from pet's at home about £20 I think

if dere young i wouldnt put sand in till there older because wen they go 2 eat they might eat some of the snd which could cause impact on there stomachs and they wont be able to pass it through and can cause the geckos to go of food for a while i had that problem with my gecko now shes on kitchen roll and she fine now
