    This is the first enclosure I've ever built for the sole purpose of displaying.

    Will be used for a 5" A. metallica. Thoughts?

    Great! Your metallica will look so nice against that green moss!

    Sadly, my girl is spending ALL of her time on the glass and has spent no time on the structure.

    My suggestion would be less moss, more wood or maybe one large piece of wood. Also make sure it's very stable. Use a glue gun to secure pieces to the glass. If she senses it is not stable she may not climb it.

    I like the set up. I am planning on buying one of those vertical tank conversion kits because buying the plexiglass and all is pretty pricey,

    Think of the structure as visual background, not necessarily something she has to be on. I'm sure she'll be on it at some point.
