Hi- Homedepot or similar stores sell sheet of acrylic, and they will cut it to the size you need for free (at least homedepot). This will allow you to make a tray under your cage that the cage can sit on or into. You can get acrylic glue, or silicone to seal the acrylic to make a water tight bin to collect water. Then drill a hole in to the side, close to the bottom of the bin as possible, place a hose in to it, seal around it with silicone. Then run the tube to a 5 gallon bucket under the tank to collect the water. So this will allow you to mist as often as you need, excee water collects in the bucket, and the bucket can be dumped. The bin should be at a slight lean towards the hole where the tube is so the water will run down and out faster. Just a thought! Hope this helps!

:I read a lot about people having "drainage systems" which allow them to mist a bit heavier without worrying about flooding. Does anyone have any ideas (or web pages) for a cheap DIY drainage system?
