>>Can you house leachianus in a 66 quart vision rack tub system, or do they need more space?, I plan on buying a colony,and would like to do this for a breeding project I love this species of gecko, what do you keepers and breeders house your leachianus in?

My understanding from what I've read (I, like you, don't have any yet, but think they're cool, and have done some reading) is that adults thrive best in fairly large cages; remember we're talking about a gecko that can be substantially larger than just about any other gecko. One care sheet I saw recommended a 3 foot x 2 foot x 4 foot tall cage (roughly 700 quarts, for comparison), though it said they could be kept in smaller spaces. I guess if it were me, I'd probably give them as much space as I reasonably could. I imagine juveniles would be just fine in a rack system, but your adults might be best off in larger separate caging.
