Default Got my new rack system up...

So I have been wanting to set up a rack like a lot of you guys have. I took all my change to the coin-star machine at the grocery store and changed it in. Actually I had to go to three stores before I found a machine that wasn't full. I got 103 dollars out of it.

So then I went to Lowes and picked up a black 5 shelf unit:



One of our cats decided he had to know what was in the box!

After placing the rack:



I was able to get the vert housing my imis off of the floor finally.

The top ten gallon houses a pair of corn snakes that bred for me earlier this year.

The vert is the imis.

The 20 long houses a king snake I have had for 10 years now.

There is plenty of room below for my supplies and FF cultures and even my large springtail culture on the left.

I think I am going to love this rack! Next I will pick up a shop light to hang above the section where the verts go. I figure I'll build three more eventually.

At least now my wife can't complain about how junky my room looks!

Nice rack Dave, it sure makes a difference. Once I'm done with college and settled in a house I'll get one of those and expand my collection.

It sure is! Of course my wife had to mention the little table in the corner behind the rack... "When are you gonna get rid of that?!"

My wife knows me too well. She told me just because I have room for more tanks now, doesn't mean I can have more frogs...

Lol, don't you know empty rack space in a frogger's room in a sin? It is hard to resist expanding when you have the room!
