My gf and i were looking for a starter kit for our beardies and seen a few but this caught our eye and was on sale for 54.99 plus my 5 off for rewards card,it came with good quality products and bigger tank then the other kits,we have one fancy dragon and a reg dragon and they both love it,BUT only issue we have is the bulbs that came with the kit don't get to the temp they need it gets it to the low end of the temps they need so i bought a 100w infared heat bulb and they are more active and now its around 100 during the day and 70-75 at night,also replaced the basking bulb with same results,and another thing you need is the uvb bulb,they have a basking/uvb bulb but its like 65 dollars,but over all this is a great starter kit

I am going to write this review so others dont have to go through what I did. I first bought the zoo meds leopard gecko starter kit for $89.99 plus tax and it was in a 10 gallon tank with a few things like a very cheap thermostat, fine sand, very small bottle of calcium, water purifier drops, water dish and the lights which were in basically housed in the same light fixture. Needless to say I brought it straight back to petsmart because for the cost I thought I would have gotten better quality. Then I saw this 20 gallon desert starter kit for $99.99 but I got it on sale for $54.99. Regardless I would have bought this kit for the full retail price because I love it so much! This kit comes with a 20 gallon tank with a much better lid constuction compared to the previous tank, two separate lights with bulbs, the carpet floor mat instead of sand and a much much better thermostat with genral humidity gauge as well. It is not a complete kit seems as you would need other items such as a uv light, heat pad that is rated for a 20 gallon tank, water dish, hot and cool hides as well as a wet hide for shedding, ect. I would very much recommend to others!

My leopard geckos love it! You have enough room to fit 2 hides plus lots of extra room for décor(rocks, plants, and other stuff.) Overall Great product :)
Pros: stylish, sturdy

This tanks looks good but is way too small to house a adult bearded dragon . It would be fine for a baby for 2-3 months but will quickly be out grown . I am also disappointed that the sales person said this would be everything we would need for our new beardie . We had to go out and purchase additional tempature gauges and lights as the ones in the box were
not UBV .
