Hi this is my second Vivarium and has been up and running for 1 month. My first Vivarium was built using an old 50 gal aquarium with a separate land area but it proved not to be tall enough for my Red eyes and I had some problems with the drainage and other things so I decided to build one from scratch. It is a 100 x 100 x 40 cm custom built enclosure which also works as a rainchamber with 2 sliding front doors. It is all glass with false bottom.
