    Negative lol.

    Edit: wonder if Michael causing cell outages above us is some how effecting it somehow. A manual refresh of my gmail brought up the notifications.

    :rolleyes: Well, it didn't last long. No notifications after that one again lol. Suppose as long as no one feels ignored it's ok though :panda:.
     
  16. Hi there! So I would recommend the following:
    -mistking misting system
    -Dragonstrand keeper series enclosure with dragonledges and drainage pan (get an atrium if you want the biggest enclosure they’ve got lol but not necessary for a panther)
    -a nice rack to set it all on
    -Arcadia fixture and UVB bulb
    -Solarmeter
    -Temp Gun
    -hygrometer
     
  17. Awesome, you have no idea how much you've helped!

    After realizing 7.5 inches is pretty small compared to the 24 inch cage I figured it would be much better overall if I were to go with the two 22's. This way I can get better coverage and deeper penetration.. right? Unless there's something I'm missing and there's a better option lol, in which case please let me know. (I'm still a little bit confused on whether the 6500k plant light is better or worse than the LED)

    Once again, thank you so much!

    Thanks - I know this is a long thread with lots of detours, but I've already decided on the DS clearside atrium (Bigger is better with a male panther!) & already have a solarmeter and temp gun. I use digital hygrometers/thermometers with my reptiles already & will buy a 2 pack for the chameleon. As for lights, the wonderful @dshuld is working on an LED option for me, otherwise I will go with a 4 light HO T5 growlight & UVB system with built in timers. I'm going to use a wire shelving unit - 1/2 height to set it on & my dad & I are working on a nifty drainage system. I will probably use a tension rod with some home sewn curtains for aesthetics. I have many talents now - plumbing, electrical, multi-animal husbandry, home ec, etc! I have an extensive plant list & will get a mixture of manzanita, vines, and local (non-ash because of the emerald ash bore beetle epidemic) wood branches to make plenty of roadways with a variation of the "living wall" for a backdrop.

    For feeders I plan on using what I use for my crested geckos: crickets, hornworms, superwoms - all gutloaded using crested gecko powder (might find another base gutloader as this is $$$)
    , spirulina & bee pollen as well as fresh veggies & oranges for moisture.
    New food sources: silkworms - might try hatching from eggs as I have an incubator from raising parrots; BSFL
    NO DUBIA - I cannot do roaches of any kind!

    It's nice to summarize where we are so far!

    Ok - feel free to hijack away...I can always steer us back! :p:LOL::ROFLMAO:

    You’re going to want roaches, besides silkworms, the’re the healthiest option, and there’s so many to choose from
