Gecko Housing

I'd like to change up my geckos tank...ive been seeing so many different types of tanks, glass, acrylic and screens as well as homemade stuff...also there are so many different brands like exo-terra and zilla and t-rex (or something)
what do you all recommend...im really curious about the screen inclosures vs. glass.

Glass is better for humidity, screen is also good but harder to achieve the right percentage of humidity.

The glass vivarium/terrariums are great! If I didn't need so many of them thats what I would have.

If your looking for ideas on how to set up an enclosure for a crested gecko take a look at mine, there in a thread called 'The gecko vivariums".

They are all old aquariums placed on end as to make them tall. Tall is prefered since crested geckos are aboreal.

The screen/door on the 40 gallon is custom made by my father and I. The other tanks have tight fitting screen lids that have tape (some people use latches or zelcro) for extra hold.
