Here is one of my main enclosures.
This thread (http://forums.repashy.com/showthread.php?t=496) has links to a few pictures of my enclosures, two plastic faunariums with live plants, coco humus and egg crates.
Where did you get that great little thermo/hydrometer at?

Actually I got it at meijers, on a sale. Wish I would have bought more, everyone seems to like it.

No meijers in California however fini, only in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and one or two other states in that area.
http://reptilesupply.com sells digital thermometers for only like, $7 ish. Tempguns are very convienant aswell...but a bit mroe pricey (http://tempgun.com).
Thats a very nice enclosure! I like it a lot!
Here is Cocoa's, I am going to add more to it once shes a little older, Have a boatload of those vendable vine things and several silk plants just waiting to...find a place?

Sumeru_Ciliatus and JEFFREH, what type of cage do you each have?
06-02-2005, 05:20 AM
Hey JEFFREH, how many gallons is that screen enclosure?
06-02-2005, 05:49 AM
Hey JEFFREH you can see your crested gecko under the plant to the right up on the wall and she's still up on the wall when you click the picture and sumeru I can see yours to the left. :)

ichiban I don't know what Sumeru has but I think JEFFREH has a fresh air habitat.

Mine are from a custom glass enclosure place here in Detroit. It is all glass (except for a screen top) and has a sliding door. I love glass sliding doors on enclosures, they make for easy accessability. I'll have to look for the name of the place later.

Its the largest, 30" x 18" x 30" Fresh Air Habitat.
Personally, after looking, I think Repatariums may be a better deal. There aren't any bases to hold particle substrate for the fresh airs, so i had to create my own. Even with the botoom, you could probably find a cheaper Reptarium at an even larger size...and I believe they can open from any side with zipperz, rather than only the front (which is a mahor pain to get your head through if you need to do something toward the back of the cage!).
She is liking it so far, behind that plant is her FAVORITE place in the entire enclosure. Those stickon/hannging plants make excellent hides I think, both my cresteds love theirs.
I went with screen because it was cheaper, i figured the she would like it (seems like she is, racing around in there. Never seen a more hyper cresty!) and its easy to clean. I built a large glass 48" x 20" x 20" with sliding doors for my beared dragon. It looks nice, easy to get into, but it costed a LOT of money to build.

Wow, nice cage! Did you say you built that yourself? Come over to my house and make some for me! :D

JEFFREH don't go with the reptarrium its the worse thing you will buy when you try to unzip it will get caught on loose threads I have one its the worse thing trust meI will tell you more about it when I get back from school.

Here are the reasons why you shouldn't get a reptarium when I try to zip it up it gets caught on the liner and it will shake the whole thing and it will slide it and will shake everything in it and it wouldn't be safe for your cocoa if I had to rank them I would give yours fresh air habitat a 10 and the reptarium a 3?If your going to get a new enclosure go with a exo-terra terrarium.

i love my reptarium! it is so easy to clean that it definently makes up for the 2 minutes a week i spend untangling a thread. if you trim the threads then it wont happen in the first place. the repatarium is also good because it provides security, because they cant reallty see out. my female will walk around during the day, i think its because she cant see me from inside there. and Mintyhippo, if your enclosures contents shift when the enclosure moves its not safe for your cresty anyway. here in VA we had an earthquake a year ago, my reptarium shook, nothing fell, and my cresty was fine. just depends if your decor is sucured.

You have your thought abought it I have mine I'm not being offensive.
06-04-2005, 09:23 AM
I think it all depends on what you're willing to put up with. Personally, I've tried Reptariums and didn't like them very much. To me, the worst thing about them is that crickets can eat through the mesh. However, different people like different enclosures. Find what works best for you and stick with it. ;)
