I need a tank for my fish tank.

Your snake requires roughly one square foot of floor space for each foot of your snake's length. The height is not as important.

It depends on the type of snake, its age and living conditions. I would say a minimum 50 gallon tank would hold an average size snake, make sure you check with a pet store.

This depends entirely on what kind of snake you get. A good rule of thumb is that the snake should be able to stretch itself out completely in its tank.

The size of the tank depends on what type of snake you have. A garden snake use a 10 gallon, boa needs a tank the size of a small room.


Answer by  Noah (19)

It really depends on the kind of snake you get and what age it is. Some snakes need more ground area and some need more vertical space. A good size to start with though would be a 29 gallon. They're good for most snakes under 3 feet.
