I recently finished installing a 138g Marty Made vivarium for a client, designed to house her pair of crested geckos. That's one lucky pair of crested geckos!

Very nice! So what do you think of those cages for PDF's? How's the qualitiy?

How did you do the sides and background to look like rocks?

Thanks guys!

Expect a build journal in the next week on the fake rock technique. It's time consuming, but it really looks good.

I really like Marty Made tanks - the quality is great! There is a small gap between the sliding front doors that is probably large enough for thumbs or froglets to get out. It's easily fixed with a bit of cut weather stripping.

It's nice to see a reptile vivarium, it's one of the biggest frontiers that we need to colonize IMO. Right now it seems most people other than us throw in some coco bark, a heat lamp, and some plastic plants then call it a day. Kudos for such a nice tank!

Marty has a business out of Detroit, MI, and supplies them to local pet shops and sells them at reptile shows. He's great at doing custom sizes - he recently built me 20 small front-opening tanks that fit 4 to a 4' baker's rack shelf. Very clean looking.

The Beast is finally finished! We both probably inhaled/ingested a pound of pink foam dust while building this!

I guess that means we were covered in pixie guts... definitely worth the final product though! It turned out beautifully.
