          I have seen that enclosure many times and have been tempted to make but I can't afford all that stuff.

          But it would be a frekin sweet vivarium :wink:

              i've been looking into makeing a viv and that one would be sweet. I'd be worried about humidity being too high for the crested though.

                  HOLY JEEBUS.......


                  Everyone would love to have an enclosure like that, but im pretty sure nearly all of us would choke when we heard the cost.

                    yea.. the humidity might be alittle to high. so we gotta check the plants to see if its suitable or not

                      i don't think the cost would be anything more than $200 for all the supplies (excluding cage), and it doesn't apear that complicated to make.

                      I believe all the plants that blackjungle.com stocks are herp safe.

                        i think the tank alone would be almost.. half the price of evyrthing else. thats a HUGE tank they got. and yea the plants they sell are herp safe. but plants emmit humidity through evapotransportation from the leaves. which might actaly raise the humidity TO high for crested geckos to handle but it might nto be a problem with a screentop but who knows. need to do stability tests for at least a week

                          Whoa. That cage is awesome. I was thinking of trying for live plantings in a living room display, but I hadn't thought nearly that creatively.

                          I think if you changed the water system from a "drip/waterfall" type to a fogger/mister type the humidity would be better. Bear in mind that the whole bottom of that tank is water-soaked gravel and that epiphytic plants have a much slower metabolism than normal rooted houseplants, so they wouldn't put off as much water.

                            If you had several fans mounted near the top it would help too...
                            also yeah that cage is huge it would be a lot cheaper if done on a smaller scale.

                              Yea I've seen that tank before, it's pretty amazing, you could get rid of the drip system and all the water in the bottom to lower the humidity, and just mist the plants, the tank is made for poison-arrow frogs so that why the humidity is so high.
