Default 8 vivarium rack

Over the last 2 months I have been building a rack for my pumilio collection. here's the progress so far:




















Still have planting to do and I need to fit the FCA fronts to the tanks and install lighting which will be from 2 T5 tubes across each row of tanks.

The tanks are 24x15x12 (LxDxW).

Thanks for looking

I'm jealous, but I have to hide this thread if my wife sees that she'll want one

Are those ten gallon tanks or twenty? And what is the grade of the shelf? I mean like thickness of the wood.

Looks great by the way.

According to the listed dimensions, they would be 20's or slightly less.

Looking good Paul!

Thanks guys!

Yeah they are about 20 gallons, a nice size to work with.

the shelves are 15mm MDF on 2x1 subframes, the sides are 18mm MDF.

No misting system, I prefer to hand mist as is give more interaction with the frogs.

here's the list of pumilio locales going in:

Shepperd island
Nancy
Escdudo
Cayo de aqua
bri bri
Bastimentos yellow

I have 2 empty vivs so I hope to fill these up soon.. Not sure what locale I wanna go with but I am tempted with pope island and robalo.

I might put aboreus in one just depends on if I wanna keep this pumilio only or not.. any suggestions?


I wish i could say I built it but my dad actually did 8)

Almirante/mancreek and colon are very nice pumilio's as well.

Just a question: Where do you have the ventilation? I can't see it on the pictures. Or am I really looking beside them all the time?

Grtz,
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

I agree with the man creek and colon being nice locales

Ventalation will be on the fronts that are not installed yet.
