OK, so about a month ago I decided to begin building a 4x2x2crossfire enclosure, and fit it with a fake rock background. I have the enclosure built, with lighting, and thermostat wired in. Now all I have to finish in the background... Here's what I have got so far... I plan on this being the hot/basking end... This... Well I am not sure any more. I think I may just knock this shelf down and create a hide on the cool side that will also allow him to climb on top and reach that shelf along the back leading to the basking site. What do you all think? Below is a decoration I made to test the grout/paints. a little dark but I am using a "Burnt Umber" sand textured paint on top of flat black which I used to accent and add a "Rock look" Below is where it may end up when all is done assuming it will not sacrafice too much walking area. this will just sit on top of my slate tiles and will be able to easily remove it. for the enclosure I used Oak, and stained then sealed the paints (black outside, bright white inside. I installed a dual 36" florescent light fixture running 1 Reptisun 10.0 and one regular tube for added light. my spot lights are in the center pointing at the right shelf (Megaray 100w MVB, and regular flood light) And hooked a thermostat up to a separate fixture running a 100w CHE in case the night temps drop below 72* Still quite a ways away from being complete, and I am so not looking forward to all the grouting, but my BD is still only 9" and won't be moving into his new enclosure for a few more months.
