It depends if you want an elaborate, natural looking cage or an easy to clean, easy to maintain, cheap yet effective cage. If you want number one then a 20 gallon tall will work for one or even a pair. If you want number 2 then go with some rubbermaid containers. I use the rubbermaids because I have many animals, and it's cheaper use them and clean. My cages are all around 18in high and 20+in long. I use paper towel as a bedding, because it's easy to clean and is cheap. Each cage has one long stick that runs from one of the bottom corners to one of the top corners. Several pieces of vertically placed corkbark and one small horizontal piece at the bottom for hiding. Then on one side there is a bunch of vines for more hiding. This works really well for me, but I use this because it is more cost effective and simple to work with.
On a side note-I've found that plastic containers heat easier than glass so I can use less powerful wattage lights.

:Which type of enclosure would be best for a crestie, would it be an aquarium, a reptarium, or something else?????????
