    After putting it off for so long, I finally came around to finishing up the tank I've been wanting to build for so long. Yoshi (my CWD) just moved into her new home, and seems pretty happy about it! I turned my old dresser into the viv, which should house her for another year or two, untill I will build another 3 foot extension to put right on top of this one to make it around 6 feet in height.

    The only thing I have to do now is buy a few more digital gauges, add the waterfall, and hook up a misting system. Let me know what you guys think!

    Edit - heres the thread when I started working on the setup, theres pics on page 1 and 2.

    oooo I really like that! i was thinking of converting my 5ft high dresser also but still am thinking about it, it would be a lot cheaper too, i really like how u made an open area for basking =)

    I say you do it. Its structurally sound and will hold heat well.

    Thanks merlin! I just broke the uva/uvb bulb on the bottom this morning because it didn't turn on, so I tried tightening it and it bursted. =[ I just emailed MegaRay because I can't see where i'm supposed to order it from. The top uvb tube will have to do untill I get the megaray =[

    Had to play with the lighting a bit, got home and the basking area was at 130! Ambient was in the low 100's, coldest was 90. Now I have it at around 100 for basking, 85-87 ambient, and coolest part is 78. She seems to be loving it though. Im SHOCKED at how amazingly this thing holds humidity! I sprayed it a few times and it hit 90% and it's been in the high 80's now for about 20 minutes.

    Wow, that's pretty impressive and it'll be 6 feet, too? It's hard to imagine an enclosure almost as tall as I am, I'm used to 20 gallon tanks!
