    Hello everyone, I’m taking the plunge and building my own euro style terrariums. (Had enough of modifying exos) I already know the dimensions and thickness I need etc... just need to know what type of glass you guys use?

    Looking online but can't seem to find anything about care, living arrangments, water feature, humidity, etc. on Glass Frogs, I mean I did find a post from about 9/10 years ago. Please Help!

    Hello, everyone! I'm a newb in the PDF hobby, but have always been fascinated by tropical plants and frogs. After months of research, I converted a 29 gallon (long) aquarium into a vivarium with a ledge for hanging plants, a small pond, and a dribbling waterfall. However, I have no lid...

    Hey people, so I've been working on a viv (29G - thread to come of build process eventually) and I've got everything put together for it except one part - the sliding doors. If you're curious, I took a standard 29G aquarium and peeled the front pane off. My glass cutting skills aren't too...

    Has anybody tried rubbing potato slices on the glass of their vivs to cut down on the amount of condensation you get? I've seen people do it with their car windows to some effect, and I figure it shouldn't be harmful to any darts that would come into contact with the juices.

    I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what is going on with one of my tanks. It's an empty tank, that I was going to use for a build soon. But I have run into problems getting it clean! There is what looks like water-spots and water line buildup all over this thing... and nothing I...

    Hello, I have a 20 gallon high I am making a lid for. I have two cut and drilled (for ventilation) pieces of 3/16" glass. I am trying to connect them with a living hinge purchased from NE herpetoculture, on their website it says that 3/16" fits, I believe it does but I am having the worst time...

    What's the maximum safe hole size in 3/16" glass for ventilation and how many can I have. Where should they be located in the lid? This is for a two piece 20 gallon high. Would a few 3/8" holes work or do I need to go bigger? Thank you!

    Hi folks, I am currently building a 24x24x48 inch (length, width, height) glass tank made of quarter inch (6 mm) glass. I don't plan on putting much water in it, I want it to be part land part water, with maybe 10 gallons of water maximum in the bottom. I am unsure what to do when it comes to...

    Looking at getting a 65 gallon tank and wondered if it was tempered glass. It is a 36' 24' 18'. Wasn't sure if for the most part these tanks are all all the same and are tempered or not and if anyone knew. I may be buying one and making a vertical tank out of it. Needed to know if I could drill...

    Hello Everyone, I am making a new top for one of my tanks and have a plastic hinge that I siliconed to the two pieces of glass. The hinge is the kind that just extends over the top. The glass has a 1/4" gap between the pieces. I need to figure out how to plug that gap at least at the ends to...

    I have been making borosilicate glass functional decor for my terrariums for a little while now but I would like to start offering these on a small scale to the hobby soon. I would love some feedback and I would appreciate any suggestions that help improve functionality or make them more...

    I thought I would share some photos of the latest build I am working on. Comments, suggestions and criticisms are welcome. It is a 20g tank that I had Protean do a vertical conversion with a euro vent. I plumbed the back surface of the tank for a drip wall and did a Great Stuff/coir...

    Hey Everyone, Just received my glass today and for the most part its looking good. Two pieces were the wrong size but they were small pieces so shouldn't be to hard to replace. One of the large pieces however has a bit of extra glass on one corner where the glass looks like it didn't break...

    Just wanted to see if what my local glass shop just quoted me sounded right. I asked for a price on: 1 x 22 x 22 inch 3/8 inch thick 2 x 22 x 30 inch 1/4 inch thick 2 x 21.5 x 30 inch 1/4 inch thick They said it would cost about 210 dollars. Glasscages has quoted me at 114 including...

    Hey Everyone, I am in the planning stages of a new tank. I think I want to build the tank from scratch and make a rimless column tank. I also want the tank to be viewable from all sides with no cables or tubes running down the sides. To accomplish this I would have a pvc pipe running up the...

    I got a piece of glass cut at my hardware store for a lid to my viv and I am noticing that the side that faces into the viv has started to smell kind of strongly. The whole viv doesn't smell so I don't think it is having much of an impact but I just wanted to make sure I am not gassing my frogs...

    Hey Everyone, I am thinking about building a hexagon tank from scratch and wanted to see if anyone could answer a few of my questions. 1. I am planning on using 1/8th inch thick glass will that be thick enough. 2. To join the sides together will the glass need to be beveled or will the gap...
