    It all depends on the pede you get really. Just make sure the tank is 1.5x higher than the individuals BL and 2x as long as it. 5-10 gallon tanks work great but there are alot of other ideas and ways to house a pede. Here is a pic of a setup for a larger pede.

    @cjm

    So you're saying that I should be keeping my 9"+ pede in a tank that's 14" tall?

    Unless you want a 9"+ pede roaming your house it's a good idea. they find any and every possible way to escape and will jump on the opportunity if given it. If the enclosure is taller than the pede's BL there is no chance of it escaping.
     
  16. It's a good rule of thumb but as in my pics I posted, I've got a sub 10' pede in it and it's 13 inches to the top with 2 to 3 inches of sub. I've not had one escape or even reach the top yet. However, they do get close sometimes. lol

    I swear I dont know how some of the pedes I lost escaped. What looks like a fool proof enclosure has failed me so many times. So I stick to the general rule and havent lost one sense. It works great indeed.
