Crested Gecko Tank Plans

Postby gekosin » Mon Jan 27, 2014 12:17 pm

Hi All,

Just wanted to see if anyone has any tank/ enclosure designs with a mesh roof I could possibly take a look at and potentially replicate with a build?

Need to build 2 of these for our geckos but not quite sure how to make the mesh roof...

Thanks.

Just get some Exo-Terra cages, the 60W x 45D x 60H cages work great and has a mesh top.

I do love the look of the exo-terra cages but my wallet will never ever recover :( they cost way too much, also i prefer to make the cages it gives me a bit more freedom to add things/ remove things as i go.

We got a friend to make up a glass tank for us...

The tank is completely glass and has 5mm slits in the top the tank works perfectly and holds the humidity well as is needed with cresties .. because its made of glass its cheap and it looks great
