What to put in my new Viv?

So I recently put together a 18x18x24 naturalistic viv for some of my crested geckos. I had so much fun doing it and it turned out so great that I wanted to try another one. It just so happens that at the Pomona show I won a really nice 24x18x36 exo terra. My only problem is what should I put in it? Thoughts I have had was to just do another really big Crestie viv, a nice Chewie tanks, or a tank for some Uroplatus geckos. I am just not sure that Uroplatus do well in glass, and not sure requirements on chewie's and if I could put a breeding trio or more together in something this large.

So what's your vote? What should I get? ....build my viv

GTP? Or a nice big Dart frog viv? Even the Uroplatus sound like a good idea!

EDIT: Whats a Chewie?! lol

I was wondering where that went...I figured that I must have set it down somewhere in the show. I am glad to know you have it

You should get U. Phants. I had 2.2 group in a glass terrarium and they did great. They were my favorite geckos I've ever owned. Watching them hunt and how they would sleep was always entertaining.

He looks great!!

GTP is out....animals have to have 4 legs to come in our house
I thought about Pygmies but they don't really need the height do they? This thing is three feet tall.
By chewie I mean Rhacodactylus chahoua they are cute geckos related to cresties.
It would be one LARGE dart frog viv....actually I think it probably is over kill for any species of frog.

....maybe a smaller species of cham. What are some good species that work well in a glass viv?

Congrats on your win Rob! Such a good excuse to add more scaleys t the household! I love Chewies and cresties, but have you maybe considered a Leachianus? They look like huge Chewies but I don't know anything abut their care though. I had heard that Exo Terra make 3ft tall glass vivs, but as yet I have never come across a supplier in the UK. It must be quite heavy and come in a huge box, lol! I won a voucher in a UK comp over a year ago and I used it to buy a 45 x 45 x 60 Exo and it's been sat in the shed ever since until one of my cresties gets big enough. However, the lock on Monty's viv has broken and I can't open the door so I may have to upgrade him to that until summer when he can have his screen viv set up.

Rob, I either want to pay you for your items or send them to you. I can put them in a box and ship them.
