    I always wanted to go to enclosures like this. Did you make them yourself? How much did they cost for you and are they glass or acrylic? It looks like a vert aquarium on the far left? I want to do something like this but with screens for top (I like the ventilation).

    I had everyone one else fooled until you told them.

    They are doing good. The female looks to be gravid.

    nice looking set ups cliff, they look eerily similiar to mine, haha. What i do to make my cages is take a hack saw and cut off the top to pieces of black plastic molding on a aquarium. I then take a hammer and shatter the top piece of glass and pick off all of the pieces. I have tried to remove it as one piece but have never been able to suceed in that. I then build a screen top with one of those screen window making kits ( commonly available at home depot or walmart) that fits the measurements of the piece of glass that i broke. I silicone it in place and then move on to making the front. I used to build a triple section glass front but has since moved to a double section glass front with one hinge attached to the bottom piece and a locking mechanism at the top attached to the screen frame. I find it provides more viewing area and you dont have to hold it up while you are doing maintenance to the inside. Silicone it all together and bam your done.

    We seem to all have similar cages. They are easy to make and are very affective. Easy to get into. Dont have to pull cages out to go through the top. I love em. Ive got about 50 of these style cages. They look good.

    Hey John,
    I'm new to the forum and just getting back into day geckos after a 20 year hiatus. Can you post a picture of the set ups you describe? I'm curious about the latches and hinges, I've never hinged glass before. Do you guys cut your own front glass too, prefab, or outsource it? Thanks for humoring my dumb questions.

    hey xorac, heres the pictures you requested. Im in the process of transferring over my cages all to one style so they are a bit mismatched but they do the trick for now.
