They both look fine, the only problem is that you will have to upgrade to a bigger size in a few months. The min recommended size is 4foot x 2foot x2foot so if you can go for one that size straight away :D

I bought a 4ftx1.5ftx1.5ft viv for my 4 month old beardy (I got him at 4 months) he's since doubled in size in 3-4 months. I've realised a fully grown male should have more space than I've provided so I need a bigger viv. I've also realised that the minimum recommended sizes are exactly that, minimum. In my opinion a fully grown beardy may well like more than 4x2x2.
I'm planning to make a 5x2.5x2.5 as its as big as I can fit in my flat. I'd suggest getting the full size viv you'll need straight away as they grow so fast, from baby to full size in 12-18 months on average I've been told.
