    15-5/8" x 13-1/8" x 13-1/4" h

    The container store will ship also. I think they will ship sets of 6 of these. They are called "Deep sweater boxes".

    That would probably be fine. I know people that use those big 20gal storage bins for breeding trios. Some people turn them on their ends so they are vertical but I feel like that would fall over easily.

    I plan on eventually doing a larger tub for breeding pairs or female groups.

    Hmm. I just want whatever will allow them to live comfortably. Unfortunately 16 inches is about as tall of a plastic container that I can get, and I like the way it looks better than the 20g on its side.

    I agree. While vertical climbing space is generally best, as long as they have 15" or so of vertical height they should be fine.

    I went ahead and sticked this thread (should have actually done it sooner!). Excellent DIY info that I've already referenced several times myself in other threads--good stuff.

    Re: DIY: Crested Gecko Tubs

    I just wanted to add a few things to this thread as suggestions/alternatives for other people who will be following this awesome tutorial.

    1) I made two of these tubs and for the life of me, I could NOT cut through that thick plastic with a scorer, an Exacto knife or even a razor box cutter. I ended up having to use a soldering gun to melt through the plastic. That plastic was a lot thicker than I thought it would be! I'd actually recommend skipping the scorer and just using a soldering gun because it was definitely easier and faster.

    2) Instead of using hot glue, I used RV silicone to adhere the screen to the tub. I chose this method because I didn't want to risk burning myself with the glue, haha! To make sure the screen was taut, I siliconed the bottom of the screen first and let it dry, and then I did the sides and the top. It's held up great so far.
    (If you want to be cool, taken seriously and accepted on reptile forums, insert the same X.X or X.X.X signature that everyone else has here.)
