Hi and welcome to the Forum!!

Because your two tortoises are not in their first year of life, and a lot of humidity isn't mandatory, I'd go with the tort table. You can build a much bigger table than you can find a large plastic bin or aquarium. And if you find that you need more humidity in the table, you can always cover or partially cover it.

I don't think either one of those is large enough for your tortoise. A viv or a table can work, but you need to go bigger. Its not hard to maintain only moderate humidity in a Viv, and an open table can have a humid hide to offer a more humid area to hang out in if your house humidity is very low. Either system will work, you'll just need to make some minor adjustments to get it just right.

Access and humidity ..............both factor in for a give and take .
