PostSubject: Finding a good tank?   4/22/2010, 10:16 am

I have a large plastic tank which will do for now but would like to improve on it later. Can anyone recomend a good website that I can get a good Tank/Vivariums/Aquarium for a pair of adult emperors? Im a bit wary about buying a reptail virarium because of large gaps that they might squeeze through can this happen or am I being over cautious? I preferably would like one that locks, is this standard to all viriums or something I should inquire about? Chin Scratch Any help is appreciated. Thankyou.

Here: http://www.customaquaria.co.uk/

They will make any sized tank you want and any type as well, wooden, glass etc.

They are really quick and very well made. However, I order mine through my local exotics shop.

If you want to get a tank for a scorp, then ask them for these things;

1) Glass vivarium
2) Whatever the dimensions are that you want
3) Top lid
4) Little strip of ventilation along the top of the backside.

Edit: I forgot to mention, they are cheap as hell! A tank that would have cost me a minimum of 70 elsewhere cost me about 34 from them. Probably better quality as well.

Hi, I use the smallest of the Exo-Terra tanks. They are great sturdy tanks. A lot of ventalation on the lids though. These can be covered if more humidity is needed depending on species.

More info here:
