they can tolerate 70s at night no problem. they will outgrow the 10 gallon at about 3 months old--a 20 high is better to start with if you can--it will last you longer. i'd get one that is over 1 month old just to be safe.
have fun

:I have been planning on getting some frills for awhile now. I even have mealworm and roach colonies going for them and my other reptiles.
:I will get one or two 3-4 week olds and set them up in 10 gallon aquariums. I'm gonna get a 10 gallon that I can set on the side so they can climb.
:I plan on using a uv bulb and a 75 watt heat lamp for the heat, with the hot spot around 110F-115F. I will have a water dish feed dish branches for them to climb on with newspaper substrate I will probably also put a humid hide in if I can.

:I will build probably a 4x4x4 size for when there adults later on.

:Can they handle temps in the 70's at nightime or do they need to be heated over 80 constantly?
:How fast do they grow? How long before they will out grow there 10 gallon and later on a 60 gallon?

:Sorry for so much I just love frills and reptiles so much, and want to make sure everything is good.
:Thx
