Ideas for anything i guess xD

Post by SpiderSam on Mon Feb 16, 2015 10:58 am

So I was looking up cool glass work and some of the things that were really cool were kinda small (hanging "teardrops") I was thinking u know add a screen door thingy and put some slings in them xD of course this was only a thought as im poor atm xD

Also was wondering if any one had cool ideas or cool stuff they made for your special pets...

ill upload some cool ones and explain what I can see to make it into a vivarium or something...

Cool thread! I've made pretty much all my Setups [I need to upload some pics one of these days of them] my most Proud things where:
1-My Worm Bin- Basically I took two Detergent containers and cut the bottom off one, it fits perfectly into the other one. Then I used a Plastic Ziplock bag as the main composting area, then I could expand the bag when I needed more room, I bet if you built a few of them it would really save on space.
2-Mealworm Flow-Through System- I made this in the Winter time, I think it was in January. It was two Baby Wipe containers that fit one inside the other [with some space inbetween] and the top one had holes in the bottom of it so the Frass and such could just fall down. I think it works well, then I don't have to clean them as much. And the smell is down.

Yes that would work fine, although for some insects [Dermestids and such] if they are small you may want to make the holes smaller. It's all about what you are throwing in it.

On pinterest and I saw this huge coffee table terrarium (saw one before but was small) and I was thinking some king snakes since u can house more then one (what is the limit for king snakes in the same enclosure if there is one?!?) or even a bunch of leopard geckos xD

I would assume it would depend upon the size, but 2 snakes per 50Gallon fish tank size or something like that. I don't know much about snakes.

me either I haven't done my research on them yet xD nor have I experienced having one although I had family members and close friends with boas and pythons but not king or milk snakes ....A snake I really want is a Brazilian rainbow boa x Columbian rainbow boa hybrid but both are more for experienced snake care givers due to the humidity they need but for me that wouldn't be a problem so im thinking about it xD

I don't want ones that are venomous xD I want ones I can wear as a belt and not having to worry about being bitten and dying from some kind of allergic reaction I never knew about xD

Haha yeah, plus it would be safe as long as you make the Cage escape proof. I've even heard of some people putting weights ontop of the cage so the snake can't get the lid off.

Yeah right now cinnamon is in a snake tank only reason I know its a snake tank is because the lid is one of those screens u slide on an snap at the back so I don't think weights are necessary but if need be I would

I was referring to like big Pythons in normal 50Gal. Tanks [which I don't think is the right size] You see it all the time, big snake gets out and eats little kids [or on the news anyway]

yeah ive heard stories too but im sure if ur snake is well feed it shouldn't eat others since its digestion track is so big it takes a while for them to digest!

I would assume that people would feed their snake and take out later to "play" and not take it out till after u know its been fed avoiding the whole hungry urge in general? cheers

Yes if they are smart but lets face it most people these days just get snakes because of the cool factor and don't do any research.

LOL I guess eh .. I do my research and even then its not good enough that's where having ur own with your own research works for example my rose hair HATES SMALL ENCLOSURES she doesn't eat she doesn't move and she gets very aggressive xD but on all the info ive read a 10 gallon works fine not for mine tho

was looking at this new T. Pamphobeteus Platyomma Its a sticking purple T so pretty *drools*

Yes every animal [or even colony in the case of dermestids and ants] is different. My dermestids can't stand breeding in larger containers [I even notice die-offs] but in a small cramped place they breed even faster then usual!

Indeed it does and im sure it helps new people who have questions on why their animal is acting up even tho they follow every instruction online...

REMEMBER EVERYONE U DONT NEED TO FOLLOW EVEERYTHING THAT THE INTERNET SAYS unless its food or lighting they seem to do fine with that but for big or small enclosure or if its to wet or dry ur animal will tell you Very Happy

Yes and it's always nice to add some personal touches to the Enclosures you use. I sure as the heck don't follow the rules of Dermestidariums, I make my own rules Razz

For the most part I take something I've learned from one thing and do it for a totally different insect:
Example: Flow Throughs, they were first made for Worms so you don't have to take a few hours to harvest out all the worms out of the compost and re-make the whole container environment [microbes do most of the work Wink ] I took that and made my Mealworm Flow Through, and I'm proud of it!
