New DreamCo terrestrial 16x10x6in. Picked up 3 on sale.Just got them yesterday.They are backed up because they also do plex screens for retail stores during the pandemic.
Normally 6 to 8 weeks out,but now 10 to 12 weeks out. These have the 1/4 in plexi vs the 1/8 in.Laser drilled vents.Will be rehousing my T.blondi and A.chalcodes.

This enclosure is for an adult A metallica female. The enclosure itself is from Tarantula Cages, not sure if they're even still in business. Size is 8x8x16. Wanted to make a display quality enclosure since she's my first adult.

My dad and I just got into the hobby, and drilled our own vents in boxes we found at local art store, all drilled with 5/32 bits (time and lots of patience).

First up, terrestrial vivarium for 3 communal M.Balfouri (Blue Baboon) using a large 3-7/16"² x 6-5/16" with 90 holes on 4-sides and top.

Next is our terrestrial vivraium with a medium box 2-5/16"² x 6-3/16" still 90 holes on 4-sides and top for our H.Gigas (Red Baboon).

More to come...

Thought I'd share pics of some acrylic enclosures I just built. These are 8" x 15", sized to make the most efficient use of my shelf. I am currently finishing up 3 more same style enclosures sized 11" x 15". All are 12" tall to give enough soil depth for burrows and proper "soil bioactivity".

Just posting my setup. Nothing fancy, but looks nice. And no, I never leave those LEDs for more than a couple minutes.

IMG_0070.JPG

Details are as followed :

Top Left : Maintenance tools
Middle Left : Music collection : Mostly albums with Ronnie James Dio (RIP), some various Sabbath releases with the other 4 singers, some Priest and a couple of video game soundtracks.
Lower Left : Various books about Ts, Dio or Final Fantasy III, Spider-related movies and various metal concert DVDs.
Upper Right : G. porteri and T. albopilosus.
Lower Right : B. boehmei and B. hamorii.

Not bad, huh ? ;)

Work in progress. This will be for my C. cyaneopubescens when it's finished. Not much left to add. Just a few smaller sticks and a water dish (which I will re-use from her current enclosure), and some dried leaves. Don't want to overload it. Size of terrarium: W 50cm, D 35 cm, H 30 cm. Soil and moss from a nearby beech forest (as are the dried leaves), completley dried. Model is a WW I Fokker D-VIII by COBI (Polish "Lego" - has a lot of awesome kits). Let's see how that scene looks in a few months.

Waiting for her to molt before I rehouse. She's due pretty soon, I expect.

My first terrarium build from scratch, for a Heterometrus cyaneus. I used some old glass panels and went crazy with the dimensions 40x32x32 cm IMG_20210308_201957.jpg IMG_20210308_202031.jpg

Found a few exo terra 8x8x12 brand new on the cheap. Decided to try my hand at drilling glass. This is still missing a few items, but I'd appreciate any input. 20210314_113436.jpg 20210314_113447.jpg

Slightly updated setup...

IMG_0080.JPG

Top Left : T Maintenance Tools

Middle Left : Various Metal CDs (Sabbath, Dio, Montrose, Priest) and one Game Soundtrack (Final Fantasy III/VI).
Various Spider movies, one Tarantula Documentary and a handful of Metal concert DVDs.

Lower Left : Lots of books about Ts, the Nintendo Power FFIII Player's Guide, one on Beer, one each for the legendary Ronnie James Dio (RIP, good sir) and Tony Iommi (The Godfather of the Heavy Metal Riff). Also that scientifically accurate plastic model of Pandinus imperator which I got from my visit at the Montreal Insectarium back in 1996.

Top Right : G. porteri, T. albopilosus

Bottom Right : B. boehmei, B. hamorii

Now how's that for a cabinet setup ? I'm very happy when this :)

Here's the terrarium I furnished for my s. maurus palmatus. They were a lot smaller than expected on arrival so they're not ready to move in just yet, although luckily this gives me the chance to put in more excavator sand when I have the time. This is a repurposed Juwel Monolux 60 aquarium and its dimensions are 60x30x30cm. I'm darn proud of it. :scorpion:

As always, I love your enclosures!! A great example that without wasting a lot of money someone can create wonderful natural looking setups!

Absolutely, aside from the sand I used as volume filler in the clay mixes and the containers themselves, the scapes in all of those setups didn't cost me a cent. And using local materials gives your setups personality, instead of them looking like clones of every other vivarium on the planet that has the same 10 or so materials/plants inside.

You yourself have made some very impressive setups if I'm remembering correctly
