    Hey guys,

    Does anyone else use Hobby Lobby acrylic display boxes? I know lots of people use them for arboreals but I love them for terrestrials as well. They're super simple too. Drill holes for cross ventilation and some sand paper to the corners as they can be seal nice and tight. Plus they're stackable! IMG_20180823_133158.jpg IMG_20180823_133214.jpg

    I tried them once a long time ago with my T stirmi and she kept pushing the lid off. I never tried it with anything else...gave up on them quick. I like the way they look though.

    Hmm, the lids on mine are so tight I can barely get them off to feed them lol. Thats why I sand paper the edges. Maybe they changed their design a lkttle
