Hehe, it'll be Euro's, it £22.99 GBP which would be roughly $35??? ( UK is always more expensive than USA :( )

Do you think the 38 gallon will be too big? :)

The 22 gallon is 14.5" x 14.5" x 25", that's about the same size as what she's in now - i'll be better with that one then :)

Thanx :)

Cool :)

I'm going to buy lots of real plants when i get this cage, should i get the tray for underneath too?

I've got the reptile carpet, another lamp with a 60w bulb and a nice big selection of bugs - just bought some indian walking sticks :)

yea u will need to set up a drainage system that works for you. what i do is i drop water in the leave (like rain) and i have a dish covered with mesh to catch the water and i empty it out every day with a hose. but like i said to wat works for you

I started my Veiled out in this cage at 2 months with the breeder's blessing. It has worked out fine. I have the plastic liner that has good and bad points. I am wiping up water with paper towels, but it is easy to clean once a week with a hose. I hand-sprayer mist my guy 3X daily for 5 minutes, and even that produces alot of water. You will need a good UVB light because the mesh is dark and blocks light. I use a Zoomed 10.0, and because of the dark mesh, it is not easy to see into the cage unless it is well lit.

Great advise, thanx guys ;) :D

I've got a good supply of paper towels lol - using them in my stick insect tank, much easier & cheaper than substrate.

Now ( please don't shout at me ) i was thinking of putting my mealworms in the same tank as the stick insects - is this a good idea or will the worms eat them? It's just a space saving idea :confused:

Why not contain the worms to a small plastic container that you can set in there. I have 3 types of worms in one drawer but they are seperated this way

Vivarium..

Hey there, I just recently purchased a Chameleon. Itl ives in a home-made glass Viv just now roughly 14" x 16". I know I need a mesh/screened viv but funds are low just now - Will he be ok for maybe a few more weeks?
He's a Vieled Chameleon about 5inch long to base of tail.

Cheers much. Chris.
