I've had a bearded dragon for a year and the family are a lil interested in getting a new one.
I have no intention of getting rid my bd but what lizard isn't too much trouble but fun all the same?

no where near the size of a beardie and they dont need a huge viv either
I have mine in a viv 24x15x15 and she is really happy with hides etc
hope that helps

depends on what type of gecko you get.if it was leo then the absolute minuim is 24 " x 15", but personally i think this is too small, a 30" is much better, we have our male in a 36 x 15 , as for other geckos, im not too sure... have a look on www.geckoworld.net if your are considering getting a gecko they are very good.

I have had athena from a tiny baby so obviously putting her in a too big viv would have stressed her and she would not have eaten so well, if she outgrows this viv I will get her another

Yeah i know the size of the viv will have an impact on the gecko, the size i have for my bd is the a little big for a baby but right for an adult
