As long as he's not eating it, I guess you're fine.

I'm sorry if I bashed you, I totally didn't mean to hurt your feelings or anything.

I love his tank! I've never seen a beardie habitat like it. :)

Yup still need names for the dog!!
Malamine?? no it kept too much heat. 1 hot day the breeders reptile room got too hot and the juvies that were kept in her melamine enclosures were all over heated and 3-4 had died. She had about 30 overheated dragons...it was a nightmare for her. And 3hrs earlier she checked and all temps were fine. are you doing wood 3 sides then glass or plexi front? I would think glass would be better. Should either way be a fantastic build.

Would have a solid back and bottom, with plexi glass sides and front... Unless I can find glass cheaper (we have a ReStore, which sells everything SUPER cheap!!!!). Since he also climbs, glass may be better to go with...

I will also have vents on the back panel (probably 5-6 by the diagram I made), and the top part will be mesh to allow air ventilation. The front would have probably two different doors, like the one I already have. Or have the top as the "door"? But how would I keep it from slamming down on me?? lol.

ALSO... Past owner must never have taken him outside. But, I have started to... Here is today. At the very end it was a "escape and then get 'stuck' so we can go back inside" behavior... He climbed a piece of wood I propped up lol.

Unlike most beardies who run around he just... Sits... And watches... Lol.

Hey logisticsguy! I know you were saying you needed to lower the amount of fish you have... Am I still able to get Phantom Menace back? We'll be moving mid July and I will have an empty 30.
