Hi,I've been keeping reptiles of all types for 20 years,but have never had zonata. I'm suppossed to be getting 2 female zonata. One is a yearling and the other is 2 years old c.b.. I've done all the research I can find on how to keep them properly,but thought I would ask the experts here the best way to keep them. I've read they need to be kept cool,in the seventies,humid,with a warm spot. I have 2 10 gallon tanks with an undertank heater on each tank. The bedding is cypress mulch and I put pvc pipes in each tank buried for hiding and also ceramic flat dishes on ech side of the tank for hides as well and of course waterbowls they can fit in. Is this over kill? I noticed alot of people just keep them in sterilites with a water bowl. I guess I'm trying to avoid the zonata disease thing as much as possible. My question is will the 2 10 gallon tank setups be good for them?

Thanks,
Kevin
