if you know of a better cage (under $150) please feel free to post the link, preferably one with a bottom door.

I don't think it is too big at all. In a few months he would probably outgrow a smaller cage anyways. The thing with the big cages for most is the cham being able to find their prey. Just cup feed then, and problem solved! I never cup fed my cham and he never had a problem finding the food at 4months. I would let the crickets go on the bottomof the cage and they would shoot up the screen right towards the light and he would just pick them off one by one. Most of the worms you can just set on the branches. i use a 36 X 30 X 18 and it has worked great.

A lot of people do the grow out thing. I do for starters. If you have the money go for it, if not I would go with the bigger cage.
