RTBs do not grow that fast so as long as the snake has enough room to move and around you should be fine, you could keep a baby in a 45 gallon for awhile then just upgrade as it gets bigger :rsmile:

I would build one or go with a Vision tank or animal plastic but sometimes when you put a new snake in very large enclousers it can stress them out.

An optimum size of tank for the boa(if you never want to upgrade) should measure 4 ft x 2 ft x 2 ft. This is what I keep my 7 ft columbian boa in and it does excellent.

Hey---did you know that you shouldn't keep a Ball Python in a glass aquarium? They are best kept in rubbermaid enclosures. Check out the Ball Python forum.

I have kept my ball in a glass aquarium for over two years now and haven't had any problems.
