    species suggestions?

    hey all!

    since my BP has moved into her newer, mansion-like enclosure, her hatchling 10 gallon tank is collecting dust. I'd hate to get rid of this tank since I got it brand new, and I already have substrate/heating element/etc. But I am getting antsy at just leaving an empty tank on my desk.

    all of this to say, what herp would you suggest putting in a 10 gallon tank with a screen lid? I want an animal that can comfortably stay in a 10 gallon for its whole life. I'm not opposed to tarantulas, but I was curious if there are any tiny reptiles/amphibians that I could possibly keep. Obviously I am not going to impulse buy an animal without giving the subject extensive research, and I want a 10 gallon to be plenty of room, not just the bare minimum. there might not be any animal at all that would fit this tank, and if that's the case, I'll either sell it, give it to someone who needs it, or hang on to it till I get my next baby snake.

    I don't have any ideas at all, but maybe y'all know something that I don't! thanks in advance!

    I've considered dart frogs - I wasn't sure about them because I don't know how many are supposed to be kept together in an enclosure, or how much space is needed for a group of frogs... thanks for the suggestions!

    How about a little desert banded gecko? They're cute, easy & stay small. When I kept one (many years ago) I also had a tiny night lizard that got in my house &
    which I found on top of the gecko's cage, looking in. I gave him (or her) a separate home, lol. Night lizards are only about 4" max, including tail, when full-grown,
    and eat tiny meal worms, ants, flies, small beetles, spiders, etc.

    Hognose snakes - super super cute

    They are rear-fanged and as such are classed as mildly venomous..

    Best do an awful lot of research if you do go that route .

    I'd love one or ten myself but sadly I'm ultra sensitive to most things ..

    A betta fish! Don't have to worry about humidity with them
    You can go bioactive with a ton of live plants too!
    No cage is too large - nature is the best template - a snoot can't be booped too much

    I absolutely love Kenyan Sand Boa's and a male would be good in a 10 gal.
