Would 45cmx45cmx45cm Exo Terra Terrarium be a suitable size for crested gecko or would it need a much bigger enclosure?
Thanks.

I would go with a bit more hight. Go for the 60x45x45. That would be suitable for a pair.

Thanks Bjorn.
I currently have him in the 45x45x45 but I have just bought the 60x45x45.
This weekend I'm hoping to setup his new home for him and then my Leopard gecko will move into his old home.

But yeah lets see some pics of your crestie setups people ;)
I'm going to use bark chips for the substrate and then fake plants... but also want to make him a nice little hide... just need to give it some thought.

If you want to make nice "natural" hides use coconut Shells with all the "fibre" still they look quite cool.

Hides are not really that important, I have never seen a Crestie use an actual hide, we use moss as a substrate and both Cresties hide\sleep under the moss. We've got hides in both cages that were bought when we 1st got the geckos and they have never gone in them, not once. You can get hides for making the cage look nice.

I'm sure your Crestie will love the higher cage.
