  • looks like yall have some experience...

    Give me the best ideas for my upcoming tank. As in whats the best stuff or ways to go with one. He really likes to climb but its bc hes rather young. Think he'd try to climb to the moon if it was possible. The higher the better for him but i also want something that will last a while since I want to make it rather big. This will be my first time making one. Rather clueless and im not so good at building. Ha

    I have an entire thread that got quite a bit of traffic and responses. I can link it for you if you would like so you can form your own opinion but after weeks of deliberating and already having a few custom cages, buying a pre-built one is the way I went and I will never look back. But again, there are pros and cons to both sides.

        May I ask what those comments where? Maybe i can clear things up for you? If you are going to build a cage you will want to use melamine as your base

          I have found that Melamine coated Plywood (5/8") woks better, and is lighter, than the commonly used Melamine particle-board (1/2") that is commonly used. Lasts much longer too.

              Well you can certainly look into Animal Plastics caging. That is all that I have and I love them!

                  Boaphiles, never had an issues with glue vapors. Especially if you plans ahead.

                    Honestly, I love my Boaphiles, I just wish I had gotten them in grey instead of black but hindsight is 20/20. Hey, what if I just went ahead and ordered grey for just the boys? I could color code my snake room......sorry, I'm rambling. I like my Boaphiles is all I really meant to say.

                      That is pretty smart. It will help me later on if I want another. Might consider that too. Thanks

                        I have switched from building my own cages , over to buying Proline cages (in white ) from constrictorsnw.com . They use a better plastic material (high density poly-ethylene) ,
                        that Is non-porous, and much easier to clean .... Also 2" taller, for an easier accessibility . I've also dealt with Boaphiles . . . .

                          I've never heard of them but I'll look into them. Im glad im getting so many responses bc it is easier for me to look into and everyone here knows wayyyy more than I do

                            I have both ProLine cages and Boaphiles and there are pros and cons to each. I got a stack from ProLine which was really good for the price but it hasn't held up over the years and through multiple moves. So I wouldn't recommend getting a stack but the single cages are nice. I went back and forth for a while and eventually went with Boaphile for my latest round of cages. I've been pretty happy with them so far although it is an extremely long wait time.

                            [MENTION=9045]Morgans Boas[/MENTION] how do you clean your ProLine cages? I love the white because it makes everything easy to see but I've never been able to keep them really clean. I use mostly bark in that cage and it stains the sides. After a few years it's looking kind of dirty despite my cleaning efforts : /
