Hey people, I'm looking for an arboreal gecko that doesn't need tropical humidity. I like cresties,leo's,panthers, flying geckos, but i would rather have an arboreal/not high humidity. Do they exist? If so, i don't want to spend a fortune, below like 50$. The reason is i have a big 67 gallon tank(3ft. long, 15" deep, 29" tall) and if i were to put a leo it would have all that wasted height. Any suggestions will help!:D

Most arboreal geckos require high humidity, but I believe Standing's Day Geckos require only moderate humidity (as opposed to cresties and such). You'd want to do your own research and double-check that, though, just to be safe. But I'd asked this question before and they were suggested to me.

If I had room for a tank that size, I'd put a bearded dragon or collared lizard in it. They're not arboreal, but my beardie loves his hammock and can climb to the second shelf of my plant shelves with no problem.

I ACTUALLY THOUght(sorry for yelling) that beardies need more room than that? Hmm.. But i really am interested in breeding whatever i get, and they are kinda on the expensive side for me. I also looked at corn snakes, and it seems people are keeping them in smaller vivariums, but i'd feel too bad for mine. Since they grow to like 4 feet. Those black ones sure are a beauty though. But i'll probably just stick with something like some leo's. Cheap, pretty, dont need a lot of space..

it is a bit on the small side for a beardie. I keep mine in a 40 gallon breeder, though 36"x18"x18". He gets to run free every morning and seems to do fine in it.
