Hi,
I was wondering if the leo's will be stressed in an old snake enclosure? (I can get a 1.2m x 300 x450 enclosure)

A 4ft viv (120cm) is quite large for leos but not overly so really, particularly if you have a few. Do you mean an all glass enclosure or a normal wooden viv? Either way they should be fine but if its all glass cover 3 sides with card or background paper to make it feel more secure for them.

maybe he means will they be stressed if they can detect the odour of snake?

gaz, That is the question (Sorry if I didn't make it clear). The size isn't really my concern (more a plus). It is the sent of the snake, that I am worried about...

disinfect it & then rinse it all off thoroughly, that should get rid of any scent, however i shoudln't really think it'd bother them, but you should disinfect all tanks/vivs whenever you move a new animal into it hope that helps :)

Ah sorry, didnt read that post properly! But no if you thoroughly clean the tank (which should be done anyway) there shouldnt be a problem.
