Bowed fish tank to snake cage

I'm getting a ball python and need to upgrade he size of my tank. I found a fish tank for a great price. Can I convert it? The thing is it's a bowed tank. Would this still work being a 40 gallon and that's what the guy told me I needed. I'm just not sure if thatll be enough room.

I'm getting a fully grown female

Re: Bowed fish tank to snake cage

Someone else asked about a bowed tank before, in another thread; let's see if I can find it...

Couldn't find it.

Hopefully you have a top for it, or are you planning to make one?

Personally I'd have said not big enough by some margin. Even a 55g is too small but then I considered a little odd when it comes to regius care

Tank Size Chart

Standard bowfront tank sizes are at the bottom. 36x15x20 would be great for any of the North American Rat Snake species. I'd probably want a little more room for a ball python but it sounds like it'd suit a smallish male quite nicely. Getting a secure lid would be of the utmost importance however and that's not an easy shape to work with.

36x15 is too small for a adult bp imo. Used aquariums are pretty easy to come by. You'd want a bigger footprint.
