Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has any good plans for a big water monitor cage/habitat. I'm either going to be converting part of the garage into an enclosure or just building one in the house. I want it to be about 12 feet long, 6 feet deep and 4-6 feet High. Any ideas are welcome and much appreciated, like how to make the pool (I don't want to be trying to empty out a massive pool every couple days and lugging clean water buckets down the stairs. There's got to be an easier way.... And substrate. I keep hearing conflicting advice when it comes to water monitors burrowing. I was thinking of dirt/soil with a mix of loose coco husk....I wanted advice on how deep the substrate should be. Lighting as well....for the basking area, I want a row of lights over top of a platform for basking and im not sure how to achieve this.....a row of several 50 watt lights or a mercury vapor...one large 150 watt with some ceramic heat emitters?... Basically, I want to build this right and I want some plans for pictures, experiences from others. I know room enclosures can be difficult to maintain temps and whatnot so I'm thinking of having an enclosure instead of converting a room. Money is not a concern, space is not a concern either. Number 1 priority is the best enclosure possible for my water monitor - I want it functioning perfectly....proper temps, humidity, lots of space....number 2 priority is to create something that's easy to clean and operate. I need to be able to clean it and change the water frequently with ease. Any tips are really appreciated. As well as pics!! Thanks.
