I start my guys off in smaller tanks. I think materials just depends on your space and what you like. Lots of things can work.
:So do you think glass is the way to go? I'm not that concerned with weight considering it will be on casters. I'm just worried about breakage. I dont want some young kid doing an endo into my tank....hmmm decisions decisions.
::Thanks for the reply...unfortuntately I'm not an engineer at heart. I couldn't make a cage half as sturdy as theirs, so I'll end up buying one. Now I just have to decide on all the specifications. Should I start a baby frilly in a smaller tank like a 20-40? Would the large cage be to much for a hatchling? Thanks and stay in touch.
:::I love the looks of their cages. Just be careful if you decide to use acrylic (plexi)--it scratches easily, and I never knew this but apparently you are not supposed to use glass cleaner on acrylic--it can make the entire cage crack. Just soap and water. But, glass is so heavy. Building your own is the way to go!
::::The cage on the front page. I'm thinking of something like that built to my specifications, with screened sides and such. I like the synthetic logs for easy clean up and the fact that they won't harbor as much bacteria. What do you think? Any suggestions?
