      Cool Glass Aquarium Make Over - A custom Enclosure Build

      Most everyone on RTB will agree that aquariums (glass) does not work well for keeping snakes. Sooooooooooo........since i had no money but i had an old aquarium and a sign shop full of toys and scraps, i decided to get creative and modify the aquarium to work properly and you can watch it all happen right here:



      Enjoy!!

      Very nice first cage for Flare and I like the video you made of it. Now you know you will have to make a bigger one in about 1 to 1 1/2 years from now for him. Then you will have to buy a new baby boa as you can't let this cage go to waste. LOL

      Take care

      Lol.....the funny part is Tom, is you know I might be picking up this other boa from my cousin... you know what that mean if it happens...one giant enclosure split into 2 and since I love second levels it will appear as 4 levels...wow.....now it's got me wondering how to split a single large enclosure into two enclosures monitored by two separate sets of electronics but function as a single unit...hhhhhmmmmm.....what do you think? Should I build a 2'x4'x 6'....so the face would be a 4x6 face...sliding doors on top and bottom for both sections....now you got my brain moving...lol..

      The 2 lights are on timers so that i can get the "night drop in light and temp" and che is just running non-stop.

      Ok, was just wondering. Will be interesting to see how the humidity does in your new set-up

      Looks like that was a fun project. I have a glass enclosure for one of my snakes, figuring out how to make it functional to keep heat and humidity at the proper levels was interesting but we did manage. I wouldn't want to do it more than once though.

      LOVED the videography too!

      Yeah the glass thing is def. a challenge. This modification seems to be working ok so far....fingers are crossed.

      The videos are starting to become pretty easy to do with the iPhone....sync it to iMovie and its already in order. Just pick a template, chop a few clips down and export...pretty cool...makes it more fun to watch then to sit and read and try and visualize.
