          I agree with Jayson that glass tanks can work, just have to play with it to get it where you want it.. No question that a wood or plasic cage will work a tad better and be alot easier to maintain, but glass can work. I still have a few glass ones running with no problems. But as I build the wooden ones, I replace them..

            Just to touch on what Steve said . I would prefer to have wood or a Boaphiles cage as they do work better..but, I say if you already have glass you can make it work. ;D ;D It just takes a little more work then some other types of cages..

              well, the only prob I have with my tank is the bottom glass is severly spidered. :'( I have two layers of poster board covering the glass bottom but man, I don't know, maybe its best to just build a enclosure. I can't really do anything with this now except replace the bottom glass which is 175 bucks. I gotta make my mind up fast cuz personally, I don't like the spidered bottom. I do have the bottom sealed off so she can't get under the poster board, thers absolutly no way, I made sure of that but I bet if I move her to the smaller cage just to pick up the bigger tank, the glass will probably fall out the bottom. If you have a better solution to replaceing the glass bottom, PLEASE by all means, let me know. By the way, the glass spidered about 4 weeks ago by some freak circumstances. this really sucks. Hasen't affected the actual useability but If I try to move the tank, which I really do want to put it up on a stand, I'll probably loose the bottom galss.

                  Here is a possible idea if you don't want to build a cage.. How about taking that tank outside. bust the bottom completly out, make sure you get the little bits in the groves.. Then get a cut piece of plywood that you seal with PolyAcrilic, Put it in place, used 100% silicone and seal it down to the glass sides.. If you seal the wood like 10 days before you do this, you will only need to keep you boa out of the tank with the silicone curing for about 30 hours.. Then you all set to go... A sheet of CDX plywood should run you $15 bucks, get the 1/2 for this project.. Should be fine...

                  Hope this helped..

                      That is what I was going to suggest...
                      Plus big mich if you put a pice of glass or wood over two thirds of that screen top the heat and humidity will stay in way better... that way you could cut out one of those che's they dry up the humidity so fast....
