Default Progress report on the FCA vivarium

I have updated the web page with a progress report. Give it a minute to load as it has 14 images on it and the page is getting hammered

Let me know what you think!

Kyle - Are you going to the all-ohio reptile show Saturday? I'm going (just to look around)and I'll have this one with me. If you'll be there, find me and come check it out. I figure I'll be at the show around 9:30 or 10.

Call me or email me (contact info is on my website) if you're going to be there, just so I know, and I'll make sure we hook up.

I'll be at the show around 9-10, I'd like to see what the tank looks like. Are you just gonna carry it around with you?! or are you going to have it setup at a table?

and does anyone know if Bill from Quality exotics is going to be there? last I heard he said "I'll do the columbus show again if it falls on a different date than the Valparaiso show" and well it does this month....

I'll be taking plenty of pictures once it is completed and putting them up on the above web page. If you sign up for my newsletter, I send an email out when the page is updated. I will also post it here.

No tables yet . I'll probably just have it in my car as it would be a pain carrying that thing around.

That's fine with me if everyone else is up for it. I'll be going to your place anyway to drop it off, so either place is fine. Their will probably be a lot of finger prints on it by the time you get it though! LOL :lol:

Yes, that's my plan. I'm going to leave my house around 7:15 - 7:30, that should put me there around 9:30 or so. I haven't been to this show in about a year, so I have no idea where a good place to meet would be.

Based on the number if inquires I've had, probably. I plan on precutting as much acrylic as possible and then having them laser cut in batches of 10 or 20 at a time. This will allow me to have enough on hand to crank them out pretty quickly (I hope). Once I get in the zone it'll go pretty fast. In all honesty, it will be a little slower at first, but will speed up. Custom ones will obviously take a little longer, as all custom work does. I don't see it taking any longer than I tell customers now though. I tell them to allow 7-10 days for fabrication, testing, and shipping, but most of my orders are built and shipped within 7 days.

Hmmm... these look incredibly similar to the ones that Mark Pepper at Understory has been selling for the past year. I have two tanks of this style from him and they are great.
Here is a link to his models:

Meeting up with Paul!

Matt - you are more than welcome to come over too. There really isn't any room at the show to talk, it is really cramped. Same for you Tad...that is one of the worst aspects of that show - overcrowding.

Melissa,

sounds like a good idea, never been to the rep show but i was expecting it to be very busy. Was going to have a hard time finding Paul not knowing him.

Im sure will talk later this week and we can iron out the details.

I'm going to be at the show between 9:30 and 10 unless I run into traffic on the way down.
