Default Klima-Gro greenhouse.

Has anyone seen these in person or know anyone who has one? They look very nice, but there is not a lot of information on them.

I looked at these....

Then I looked at the price tag...

Then I closed the page.

In all honesty they were just a bit too pricey for me. I'd rather actually build something that mimics them then pay that much and I don't think it would really cost that much. I guess it might if you go for all the fancy cabinetry and what not but I'm not worried about that as much as I am function.

I was looking at them for indoor greenhouses tho so I can't really give an opinion if you are looking at them for frogs. They might have some safety issues in that department.

Nice tanks, but rediculus for the price. You can get plants to grow with a 15$ florescent and a big plastic tub for under 30$.

Well I got it. It ain't pretty yet, but there is a lot of potential. They are not cheap new, but craigslist rules. $50.

Honestly...I may just keep it for plants. I will get it cleaned up here tomorrow and take more pics of the guts.

Honestly....not much. Both sides of the top slide as well as the sides. There is control panel. It has a timer for the lights. Mine are powercompacts, some come as fluorescents. There is a ground heater to help maintain temps, but even without it it stays at 75 degrees. I think the one I got was made in the 1970's and had a retrofit for the lights.

Well, I got it cleaned up and moved in the frog room. The second time I plugged it in the control panel started on fire. It was some resistor. The Klima-Gro customer service (owner) is super helpfull. I guess this is what you get for $50 off craigslist. Still worth it. I hard wired the lights and it does what I need. I may have the control panel sent in to be repaired, but there really is no need for it.
