    Would 1180 wide x 1930 tall x 680 deep , be suitable for a fully grown coastal carpet being 2m-3.0m?

    Yep, unless you're in NSW and have to conform to those ridiculous enclosure laws, in which case, math time...

    Even in NSW that size would well exceed the code of practice sizes

    Go as big as you are able. Coastals climb. They might get bigger than 3m under your care. Forget the minimum specs. They are worthy of 5-star accommodations. If you can, make that cage a showpiece for your masterpiece.

    I have an 11-foot Olive in a 1828(wide) x 914(deep) x 457(tall), because he never showed any interest in climbing. That seems to fit him with room when he stretches out.

    BUT, a few months ago I got a 2014 Coastal. I plan on having a significantly taller enclosure with at least a shelf when she gets big.

    If you can, go big.
