Do you mean floppy tail syndrome or literally dropping their tails as in breaking off? I raise all my hatchlings and juveniles in critter keepers according to their size. I have never had a problem with floppy tail syndrome. The true cause has not really been determined for it either, whether it is a nutritional, or just them lacking things for their tails to grasp on. It might even be genetic, kind of like how some patternless leopard geckos get kinks in the tips of their tails.
Screen cages are def a good thing to use, they provide good ventilation, and are great to use outdoors. However I personally see no problems with glass or plastic cages, as long as there is adequate foliage for them to climb over and the right husbandry techniques are followed. Given that there should be no problems with floppy tails.
