Leopard geckos are popular reptilian pets that can vary in color and have peppy personalities that can make them fun to interact with. They require minimal care—in comparison with other lizards—and are great pets for beginners. One of the first things you’ll need when creating a welcoming environment for your new reptile is a leopard gecko enclosure.

To house a single pet, your leopard gecko tank should be at least 10 gallons in size. If you decide to bring more geckos into the family, you’ll need to get a terrarium 5 gallons bigger for each additional reptile. Leopard geckos do well with two or three in one tank—but only one should be male to avoid them getting territorial.
