When I was small, I LUVED Bettas. I kept them in bowls. It did never occur to me a couple of years later I would have lizards. Anyway, the bettas died, and the only thing I was left with was a broken heart :( Anyway, I decided that maybe arachnids held the answer....... WRONG!!! I kept a tarantula in that same bowl, and poof! Died some days later, due to the fact that tarantulas do NOT eat cabbage!!!!! Finally, the day had come! I got a cuban anole in a 10 gallon tank. I had another problem: the lizard ALWAYS stayed in that shelter. Too bad I didn't know that 110F is enough to kill them! After adjustments, I got a longtail lizard (Takydromus) and a green anole. From that, I kept it up for 1/2 a year. Now, I still have those same lizards..................................................... :)
