5. Zilla Deluxe Bearded Dragon Kit

3.7/5

 20 Gallons is the perfect size is you are just starting out. This tank is a quality tank but just did not make the top of the list, for a couple of reasons. First the design does not look to kind for durability, and I have spoken to multiple people that said that the tank did not quite fall apart right away, but most of these guys fell apart after just a couple years. The tank has a very appealing look and in a home or in an office, with the glass sides looks amazing. The convenience of the top of the tank with the built in light fixtures makes it a very compact and beautiful design, where the lighting wiring etc. is not hanging all about. 

Positives
  • Cheap
  • Well-rounded kit for a young bearded dragon
  • Comes with lighting components: night & day heating
  • 3 Dome-light fixtures
Negatives
  • too small for an adult
  • Needs a different substrate

4. Zilla Deluxe Bearded Dragon Kit

3.7/5

This is a great kit to start with. The perfect beginners kit with almost everything you need. It is a big enough tank and kit to create a happy and healthy environment for your beardie! It is a fairly large tank that could keep your bearded dragon with plenty of space to exercise as he grows.  The lighting fixtures are maneuverable in order to change your strategy depending on the climate.

Positives
  • Cheap
  • Well-rounded kit for a young bearded dragon
  • Comes with lighting components: night & day heating
  • 3 Dome-light fixtures

3. Zilla 28002 20-Gallon Deluxe Bearded Dragon Kit

4.4/5

This is a very beautiful tank that comes with well sealed glass walls, a desert background that reminds me somewhat of the high sierras, and more. Though it is a very basic tank that is not too fancy by any means, it is well put together with high quality craftsmanship. This tank was built well and will not fall apart anytime soon! The only downfall is that it does not quite have everything you may need to get started with your very own bearded dragon.

  • Well-rounded kit for a young bearded dragon

  • 3 Dome-light fixtures
Negatives

2. Zilla 28002 20-Gallon Deluxe Bearded Dragon Kit

3.3/5

This is the perfect Kit for any starters. From birth to teen age this cage is plenty big to keep any young beardie happy. This kit comes with everything you might need for your bearded dragon: 20-gallon terrarium, heating and lighting components, decor, supplements, water purifier, and even substrate! the only part of this kit that I would change is the substrate. If you decide on this kit, consider replacing the sand substrate for tile or a harder surface. Young bearded dragons are known to accidently eat gravel and sand which can cause impaction

1. Zoo Med Laboratories SZMNTB21 Reptihabitat 20-Gallon Long Beard Dragon Starter Kit

This is my very favorite bearded dragon kit, and actually the one that I got started on with my very first reptile! This kit is basic, yet comes with vines and fake plants, dome lights and fixtures, a good substrate, supplements, water bowl, water purifier, and more. This kit goes above and beyond with every single thing that you could possibly need to get your bearded dragon the second your kit comes in the mail! good design, and very reliable. Easy to clean so you don’t have to get your hands too dirty!

Positives
