Ahh, I can't wait for it to snow here.

another Pro is that they dont need a UTH.

And, I have yet again switched my idea on something; the background. I will be having a very natural background that had wood and coco-fiber in it. Here are some DIY links (I will make a thread too when I do it):
My New Setup Questions/Comments/Concerns - The Pangea Forums - Crested Geckos & More
Front-Opening Showcase Vivarium How-To
Naturalistic Vivarium- Great Stuff "How To"... LOTS of pics - The Pangea Forums - Crested Geckos & More

I already have the wood going on the wall (which means I need to buy wood for climbing), the spray foam (great stuff), and some flowerpots. I just need some black 100% silicone and coco-fiber, and I am ready to make it.
I am going to Petco tomorrow for some wood, and possibly the coco.

great stuff,thanks cody :)
it always makes it more "real" when someone is doing it
rather than just seeing the end result.

I am almost done with my DIY background. I just siliconed the coco fiber to the foam today, and the main part should be dry in 1-2 days. I will have a full DIY post on it, so no worries, with the final here.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Here is a picture of what the background and the planned setup will look like. Please not that I will be adding a lot of plants, both real and fake (hanging, in the ground, in the pots), siliconing a glass plate for a fiber level, and many other things. I just ordered a red bulb, blue bulb, a digital thermometer/hygrometer, and "Bamboo Bars" (climbing things) from Drs. FAS.

*Sorry for the shakiness for the pic, and the size.
I think once everything is done, it will look much better.

Well, forgot to mention...

A few days ago I got in my package from Drs. Foster and Smith with a few things. I got a red bulb (looks very cool), a blue bulb (don't know if I will use it), two Bamboo bars which are basically ledges, and a digital hygrometer/hydrometer. I also picked up two fake hanging plants. It is really starting to come together.

I just need the food, a custom feeding ledge, and more plants. I'm still debating between paper towel and coco fiber bedding for the substrate (heard towels are much easier to clean).

I have the pics, but I'm gone from my house untill Saturday. So they will be up then.
