    And if it's not a gecko, do the rest of the pets really matter? lol

    Very nice! Love the "jagged edge" detail you added.

    Sorry for bad pictures as I'm using my cell phone and testing out my new moonlight led strips
    Here's a test of the lights


    Here's what it looks like with the tops off

    A quick question - Do you use an UTH with the foam bottom? I saw the dome fixture, but I can't tell from the pictures if you're using a heat lamp or UTH.

    I have a lamp and the UTH on the left side. I cut a hole out of the bottom so the heat would transfer as I didn't really feel any heat when I left the styrofoam over the UTH. We don't keep the lamp on all that much since the UTH makes a nice warm hide...especially with the lid on. Surface is 89-91F and the gecko usually just hangs out in there.

    Thank you. I had fun making it and might end up making another one for my nephew.

    I basically turned my whole tank into one huge hide but I like doing visually pleasing projects like this for others. I'd like to see a pic with your gecko enjoying the scenery.
