They get VERY VERY BIG. IMO that enclosure will be fine for a while but not when it gets to become a large adult. I may be a little bias but when it comes to keeping big monitors I dont think many people have the money time and space for them in there home collection.

With that said, I think your setup sounds good for a little bit. Just make sure if you get one you know what you will do with it if/when it hits "full size" (possibly 8 or 9 ft.). Ans personally i felt bad giving a foot long nile monitor (who was a prick) to the store, because of space and how long they might have to keep it.

anyway thats my two cents on it.

Clifford,
A guy like yourself needs to get a baby nile monitor and raise it up. I spent many fun hours doing just that when I was your age. I would never do it now and am so glad I did then. Don't miss out. Will
