    I love that bottom enclosure you have. They love heights and the enclosure needs to be tall. Great ventilation on it too!

    As long as the pokie doesn't spring out of the pokie, it's all good. I really like the bottom one. I have one to rehouse soon.

    I use a hot glue gun a lot quicker than silicone for cutting plexiglass I recommend a dremel tool
    that bottom enclosure was throw together very quickly so it doesn't look the best but serves its purpose

    You should try making a front for the critter keepers too. I'm sure somewhere in the forum I've seen that done very effectively. Standing on an end they lean back a bit which actually looks good, the front is much the same as your bottom tank and you wouldn't know that it's just a cheap plastic tank .

    I bought
    I recently bought a mini exoterra. I am sold! We had some for our reptiles and I fell in love. Worth the money.
