Hi everyone,
Im going to purchase 2 leopard geckos after christmas and i am just hoping someone can point me in the right direction of some (not crazily expansive) plastic tubs which i can house them in (Links Please). (Like tubs for racks, preferably big enough to keep an adult Leopard Gecko in). I will be getting 2 leopard geckos and will hope to breed from them in years to come. Im quite unsure of if the plastic will melt or not so please comment when you leave a link. Thank you so much.

P.s - i live in the UK so no .com sites please, thank you! And also, feel free to leave pics of your leopard geckos, i am still unsure of the morphs i am hoping to get but i am swaying on mac snow, super snows and blizzards. THANK YOU!

Hi there,

Lots of people use R.U.B.s (Really useful Boxes). You need a 50L one really. Argos used to do these, or here is the online link

Go Shopping - Really Useful Boxes - 50 litre Really Useful Box

I would be weary about keeping two together...2 males will fight, as may 2 females, and its cruel to keep one female with one male as he will stress her and overbreed. RUBS are cheap enough to have a tub each if you really want 2 geckos. I stick a heat mat to the bottom and drill some vetilation holes ito the RUBS.

Thank You so much:notworthy:, i wansnt planning on having them both in the same tub by the way. do you think 2 of these tanks (1 for each) would be ok.

Go to Tesco Extra in Bradley Stoke (big shop) Look around in the hom apartment, there's lots of rubs for cheap mate!. And look on this site www.speckled-gecko.co.uk there in Bradley stoke, really nice breeders!.
