Those tanks should be OK to start, but, you will have to have a 8ft. L x 4ft. W x 5ft. H enclosure built in at least a year for him. Remember that open top fish tanks don’t hold heat and humidity because it just evaporates. So, you will need to make a wood top to help hold in that heat/humidity they need to survive. Your enclosure should have the opening on the front wall and the top should be solid.
