  • Adjustable Shelf Unit

    So my Hubby is the absolute greatest and spent way too long helping (mostly doing) me with this shelf unit. It is 6 feet high by 56 inches wide and 25 inches deep. There are steps along the sides so that I can adjust the shelves in 6 inch increments as my geckos grow and new ones hatch. I love it! What do you guys think?

    Sorry for the poor lighting, I'm no good with a camera. :/

      I started with glass, but tubs are so much easier to move, clean, store. At first I always thought I would never be a tub person, but here I am. I'm not a big breeder either, I just (for now) have the room so everybody has their own enclosure, even hatchlings. I can see what I can do about instructions, it never crossed my mind to take pics as I went. :/ You will probably have to settle for hand drawn.

            Looks great! How much did it cost to make if you don't mind me asking? I'm trying to get my sisters boyfriend to build me one (:

                They are so easy, just a regular steralite tub converted. I'll take a better pic tomorrow, so you can see it better.

                  It was around $125.00 total. I could have bought adjustable shelving for less, but they were all too narrow, leaving me with a lot of wasted space.

                    Thats not bad, I need the opposite! I need a less wide shelf as I only have 2 feet of wall space to use, which makes every single adjustable shelving too big. This great lighting even makes me tempted to use tubs, 18x18 exos suck to try to pick up!
