    Post 'em here folks!

    It would be excellent to have a virtual full-color catalogue of different methods for housing our collections.

    Here are the rules for posting:

    1) NO banter or conversation. Any off-topic posting will be deleted.

    2) Provide a brief description, the size of the enclosure (if it's not obvious from the picture), and specify which species it was designed for.

    3) In the subject line please specify; Arboreal, Burrowing, or Terrestrial to make scanning the various pages more efficient. If there is something totally unique with your design, feel free to modify the subject. Example;
    Terrestrial with pirrana pond

    4) If you need more information on a specific terrarium, private message the poster, rather than starting a new thread asking about a terrarium, or inquiring in the enclosure thread.


    Enjoy! We look forward to seeing your contributions! :)

    "Tupperware"-style containers - Martha Stewart brand, purchased at KMart, stackable.

    Typically 60/40 peat moss / vermaculite substrate, small water dish (some type of lid), and small flowerpot hide (can be purchased at arts and crafts stores).

    Arboreal

    10 gallon tank

    Standard 10 gallon tank with hinged screen lid. There are 3 screen clips used, two on the sides and one at the top. The two on the sides are hot-glued into place.

    I recommend using plexi-glass or packing tape (sticky side facing out) to decrease ventilation *slighty*.

    Designed for sub-adult A. avicularia. 100% vermaculite substrate, cork bark, artificial flower stem, water dish glued to side (near top) and another water dish on the floor.

    Small display cubes
    (purchased at arts and crafts stores such as Michael's)

    Designed for A. avicularia slings. 100% vermaculite substrate, artificial flower stem.

    Terrestrial

    This is a 2.5X2.5X5 plastic enclosure from Michaels that work great for my G.aureostriata (shown in pic) and P.murinus slings. Again i used a 60/30 of bed-a-beast and vermiculite, enough for burrowing or climbing Added some air holes for circulation and plastic plants for decorations.
    This set-up has worked great for the ten slings so far.

    1) various sling enclosure with a L parahybana on the side :}

    2) Arboreal(first pic) & Terrestrial(second pic) all contain 100% peat moss for substrate arboreals have either a slice of cork bark for webbing purposes or artificial plant. terrestrails just have dry substrate some will make a burrow others will just hang out, none of these have water dishes i regularly feed, and I mist twice a month for the occasional added humidity and for hydration purposes.

    Arboreal

    A setup with a 5.5 gallon turned on end for my P. regalis, I used 2 pieces of wood with some vine wrapped around for looks with about 2" of peat moss for substrate. The water dish looks like a leaf and is visible in pics 1 & 2. I used hotglue on most everything to keep it stable.
