I have a very oddly sized shelf that I need to get two enclosures on to (34"x16"x19" usable space) and have been running the numbers on making either two enclosures, or one large enclosure that is divided in to two.
I found twinwall plastic sheeting at my local hardware store, and from a few reviews I have read it seems it works well for cage building. My plan is to use the twinwall on the sides, back & floor, and use a clear acrylic/screen combo on the front and top.
My initial plan was to use standard screen framing to frame the entire enclosure, which I have used before to convert a 20L to an upright. The more I look at the scraps I have, the less I like the idea. I was checking out my Zilla Acrylic Atrium (or whatevertheheck it's called, the one Pangea used to carry that got discontinued), and I realized that the "lip" of the framing that the plastic sheets are glued on to are MUCH wider than those on standard screen framing (1/4" vs. 1/8"). Will the standard framing work well enough to construct an entire tank from? Or is there a (cheap!) alternative that I can try instead?
Is it possible to buy the plastic framing the Zilla is made out of?
