    Re: What type of enclosures do you use?

    I hear so much about 'racks', and it seems that a lot of people really like those ... what do they look like, and what are the benefits to that over say a standard glass enclosure? Am I missing out?

    We use homemade racks and homemade wooden enclosures and a couple of tanks with modified lids and some sterilite tubs for quarintine. Here are some pics.

    I also have a couple guys in the sterilite tubs for quarantine. Everything is a work in progress, but I would suggest the racks to anyone, no matter where you end up getting them from. They are they best!

    This is the custom rack/ display case I'm planning on making, It has a plexiglass door with a lock as well.



    Enjoy

    I've got two Animal Plastics racks, nine Vision Cages of different sizes, one Slantfront Neodesha, one small custom enclosure by high end habitats, and about two or three tanks, mainly for quarantine. I plan on having nothing but AP racks and vision cages sometime soon.
