this is what i call a neat setup:) it\'s great i\'m sure they\'ll like it..btw the little monster in there seems to be the girly:)
she\'s got a short stubby tail

anyways, hmm for the ramp, if u can keep the water level as it is then u might not really need one if u put something on the glass \"floor\" like rubber so they can hold on it better..or u can make a ramp with the same glass and stick some rubber on it so they can climb on..the setup is beautiful and nobody would want to destroy it with any cheap-looking ramp:)

thx for the compliment... that is definitly the she.. lol..

as for the ramp.. i was thinking of actually just formulating a largh piece of plexi and going from front to back with it.. then using the silicon to glue it to the glass.. then trim it to make sure it looks nice.. but do u think they could pull themselves out if i put some rubber on the edge? i definitly have to put something down on the plexi because they slide like crazy when i put them up there.. so its definitly going to happen.. they are definitly enjoying the setup though.. i think the higher temps are helping them alot.. i mean they are moving like crazy.. up down.. left right etc..

hehe i hope all that moving isn\'t: \"plz we\'re burning in here\" :p j/k

yes i think the rubber should work so they don\'t slide off..

waiting for more updates:)

That a cool set up! About how much would you say the plexi glass and glue and stuff cost to make it?

im not gonna lie.. it was a punisher.. its about 1/4in thick plexi and i believe i paid around 60 or 70$ for everything.. it may have been expensive but was still worth it..

plexi glass can definitely get pricey.

COOL!!! just wonder on how you did it... I know you took 4 pieces and put them together and glued them but I know things that you set up for animals are never that easy

well ill give you an update.. argh.. it didn\'t hold the way i wanted.. turns out im going to end up pulling together a wooden surround up top inorder to give it some more rigidity... other than that it worked out well.. and i did figure out how to get a ramp working.. but don\'t have the time to work on it right now.. in due time..
