Do Dragon Strand ledges work well on reptibreeze enclosures?

I was going to get the XL Reptibreeze enclosure, but I want to hang plants on the sides and have branches running across the cage. Does anyone know if the cage will be able to support the weight of some smaller plants like Pothos with Dragon Strand ledges installed on the sides?

Yes, DS ledges are universal to other standard cage sizes. Just order the size for your enclosure and follow the info on install and how to get the most out of them. His drainage trays are great too if you do not have drainage figured out.

Yes, but there are less expensive ways to go if you're handy with a hacksaw and electric drill.

At a home improvement store, pick up some aluminum stock—bar, angle, or channel (whichever you prefer—something with holes will offer more versatility, e.g. https://www.lowes.com/search?searchTerm=aluminum+shapes ...and some stainless sheet metal screws (#8 x twice the thickness of the aluminum). Cut the aluminum to fit inside the frame, drill a hole at each end (if one isn't conveniently there already), and attach with sheet metal screws.
