    Default Making enclosure front opening


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I just put my geckos in 20 longs and they are doing well with it but iím Missing the picture opportunities, I would like to find a way to make this front opening using acrylic or something similar. Has anyone done this or know of a way to? I donít want sliding doors, I do know I will need to add ventilation

    I may consider similarly sized alternatives, I tried going larger but my geckos did not react well

    could you try to be more specific on what you want to do, it sounds like you want to cut the glass and make sliding doors.

    No I have no interest in sliding doors, any other type of front opening is fine, I want to leave the tank as is and add a door system to the front

    Just so that you are aware, any change( new enclosure, new items) will cause a temporary change in behavior.

    Wish I had a suggestion on how to create what you want, but I’m far from Bob the builder

    I understand that behavior changes are normal however this thread never mentioned behavior it is merely asking how to possibly build these enclosures

    I was referring to your statement:

    I tried going larger, but my geckos did not react well.

    Some behavioral changes are normal yes but this was not a normal reaction from my female. She didn’t even react that badly when she came home. She had a complete personality change and went back to herself as soon as she was back in a smaller enclosure ( even though it was not her old one)

    Check out iheartgeckos.com. They have a front opening conversion that is meant to be arboreal, but may be able to be used if rotated 90 degrees to have a terrestrial enclosure. Someone on the forum was asking about this and I'm working on getting them to do a Gecko Time article.
