Aslong u have lots of hides and cover with fake plants it should be fine in a large enclosure. When ya think theres enough hides, add a couple...
My Rosenberg with a big smile.
Good to hear hes eating again. Pinkies aren't that good for monitors. They need the developed bones, organs and fur of adult rodents.
What's the temp of the basking spot, should be near 60c, Have u put more sand, hides in and feeding him rats/mice yet? (Chopped up adults)
Heres a photo of his enclosure, which he's out growing very quickly.
Feeding time for my rosenberg

Had my mertens lights off and he spent most the day in his water. It still got to 34 at the coolend and my rosenberg is inside with a/c.
Yeah, the filter canister gets most of the water out, then i use a little aqua one pump to get the last bit.
