Default P. Waltl 20L or 20H?

Pretty much what it says in the title. I'm finally able to purchase a tank for my future P. waltl, and I'm thinking a 20 gallon is my best bet. Do people generally prefer long or high? Does one work better than the other?

Go 29 gallon. You won't regret it.

I would wait for a Petco 1 for 1$ sale and get a 40B, I think the 20g tanks are around $30, for $10 more you get a lot more surface area. Depth of the tank is not as important (in my opinion)

Long will give them a larger footprint to explore. In my experience the additional depth is rarely used, the newts will spend most of their time on the bottom.

Awesome. I mostly asked cause I knew the sale was going on and wanted to go ahead with it before the next herp expo here. I was going for the 20L but my Petco was sold out, so I went ahead with the 29 gallon with little persuasion lol.
