I hope the answer to my question is yes because I already bought it, but is this suitable for one adult leopard gecko?
Answer by ChewyNov 13, 2021
This terrarium is suitable for a leopard gecko.

is the terrarium suited for ball python
Answer by ChewyDec 21, 2021
This terrarium would be too small for ball pythons.

How many gallons is the large? And also what are the gallons of the XL?
Answer by ChewyAug 13, 2021
This terrarium is unable to hold water due to its cross ventilation on both sides for optimal airflow. The large measures 12 inches by 8 inches by 6 inches and is good for Insects, and small lizards. The extra large measures 12 inches by 16 inches by 6 inches and is good for Snakes, Insects, and small lizards.

Is the bottom clear as well?
Answer by ChewyAug 02, 2021
The bottom of this terrarium is not clear. I have included a picture below for your review.

My tarantula is close to outgrowing all my enclosures from another company, so I searched for ones similar, these are perfect! Nice clear acrylic, a good size, easy access lid. I'm excited to put my T in this after her next molt! I do wish they sold this size just with more height, but aside from that this is a great size for an amazing price!

On the right track

I've been using this now for a couple months and while I really like the aesthetics and the utility of the magnetic lid, there are some problems with the lid design. The tracks are a bit loose so this causes the lid to scratch quite a lot and it has been getting worse over time. I use this terrarium for a tarantula and the looseness of the lid can also cause the entire cage to jolt when opening and closing it. I'll continue to use it for now, but it disturbs the spider quite a lot if I am not extremely careful to support the lid completely as it slides in and out.

Excellent quality

It came in a very reasonable amount of time, and the quality is better than I anticipated! Love the magnetic closure of the lid and the sliding mechanism. I turned it into a lil fairy wonderland for my tarantula :)

Great terrariums, with possibly spotty quality control.

I bought two of these terrariums, one for each of my current isopod cultures. One was perfect straight out of the box, but it seemed like someone literally "cut corners" while assembling the second - the standard protective film that comes attached to acrylic sheets was not fully removed from the floor panel, so one bottom corner did not join to the walls correctly. Very easy to DIY, though it's annoying to have to fix something you paid nearly fifty bucks for. Otherwise, I do love these. They look awesome stacked, and they've been easy to work with in terms of regulating humidity for the pods. Just recommend giving each terrarium a thorough check before use.

Nice setup for now

As I purchased a young tarantula, this terrarium is working out well for the time being but as my tarantula matures, I will need to invest in something bigger. It is very secure and was shipped to me well packed and arriving a couple days late.

What I needed but clearly RUSHED

When it got here I was really happy with the size and the amount of air flow that is has on the sides. What I wasn't impressed with is that there was one missing magnet to begin with and when I opened the top another magnet flew off because it wasn't properly glued in. If the animal I have wasn't just the size of a quarter (Very small scorpion) I would have been pretty peeved because anything else might have been able to push the top if it tried hard enough with the amount of magnets left. It was packaged nicely, so I do give them that. Just wished it didn't come half done.

Great almost every time.

I keep isopods and have many of these enclosures. They are incredible for small critters and I really enjoy the sliding lid for easy access. We did get one recently that had 2 large gaps in the bottom corners on parallel sides. So be sure to give them a solid check over before setting up.

Awesome but needs a tweak

This acrylic enclosure is perfect for someone seeking cross ventilation housing for their arachnids but the lid design needs tweaking. It does not slide all the way shut unless you lift it. I'm worried with weekly lifting of the lid, that it might lessen the Integrity of the plastic enclosure. Assume the company's QC will catch this soon enough and come up with a fix.

Great Size Just what I wanted

I ordered two of these the Large size with clear lid and was really glad that I did. They exceed all expectations and I am very happy. The care that was taken in the packaging assured they arrived undamaged.
