In Reply to: tank size posted by sga1120 on April 29, 2003 at 23:25:54:

:my ksb is about 3yrs old and 13 or 14 inches. ive got him in a 10-gal tank. he's been very restless the last few weeks, and he's refused to eat anything for the last month or so, which really isnt like him. is it possibly because his tank is too small? the last few nights, ive watched him crawl up to the top of the tank and crawl around the crack between the tank and the cover, just crawling around the edge for like 1/2 an hour at a time. is he getting too big for his tank or is this big enough?

He's at his sexual interest now, I'm sure he's just cruising around for a mate, typical behavior. Although a small male could get away living in a 10 gallon tank, at some point in time, you may think about going to a 20-gallon long to give him a bit more room and a larger temperature gradient to work with. I typically provide my adults around 400 sq/in of floor space. I use racks systems and my favorite box is the Sterilite 32-quart box. It's about 17" wide, 23" long, and 6" tall. They seem to like them pretty well (I've never heard them complain) :)
maybe you should find your guy a mate...hehehe
Happy herping,
