|Kitsune_Gem||Darn California and its laws on Salamanders. Everything I wanted for this tank turns out to be illegal. So I am just going to say screw it and sell the tank.|

|HypnoticAquatic||one would only think that it should as most use this is a very humid or constant rain enviroment but only way to know is to test it just like any tank, hell even our tanks arent always 100% its mass vs quality so just test it. it should but wont know for sure till u take that step lol|

The reason I want to know if it will hold water is because I plan on having water sitting in part of the bottom, and I know most reptile tanks are not sealed to hold water. While on the other hand, this ones designed to also be able to be used with a water fall system, but since I am turning it on its side, I do not think the sides would be sealed the same as the bottom..

id lean more to pdf or something thats a nice tank for them imo, use a pump to make a waterfall or hook up 2 spray/misters hidden in the front corners with 90º heads get the "seconds" timer from misk king and set up your background how ever you want plants/cork/waterfall etc. set it up right you prob have little work other than making food for them. ive really been wanting to set up a 46g bow that i got for free and trying these guys*azureus*http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/car...us-novice.html. cant say they dont look awesome can ya :p
if you wanted a tank that size to hold water prob cheaper just to get a new one during the petco sales ?

Id really like to get this done before new years, if it will hold water if I re-seal it.
Does anyone know if its possible for it to hold water after I re seal it?

So I am wondering, if I reseal the tank with aquarium sealant, the same grade used to make aquariums, put in a glass panel right before the screen top, and use the same sealant. Would it be safe to hold water long term?
I am thinking of turning it on its side, so that the door opens to the back, and turning it into just a planted wonderland.

Personally I am not a fan of them. I had them when I was a small child, not the most exciting pet in my eyes.

How about firebellied toads? I think they're really small and only need 4 inches of water.
for the divider I'd go with acrylic which would be lighter and durable.
How many inches of water does that thing allow?

Found out what they are threw LLL Reptile. They are very rare in the pet trade, and care sheets are even rarer. I got lucky and one of the workers at LLL used to breed them.

Oh I figured out what they where threw LLL Reptile. One of the workers there used to breed them believe it or not. The cage I have is perfect for a trio (1 male, 2 females), but they have a high heat requirement witch I can not meet with having chinchillas in the same room.
The tanks still sitting in my room empty and looking lonely haha.
I really wanted to do salamanders, but CA has all these crazy laws on them, and the ones that are legal here, get WAY to big for the tank I have.
I am thinking of possibly turning it on its side, sealing in a glass plate where the screen top is, and turning it into something cool.
Millipedes would be cool if the ones I like where not so darn pricy (75$ per millipede.) Then again, if my friend gets hers breeding she may give me babies free of charge.
What I would love to do is put a colbolt blue tarantula in it, but after talking to one of my managers who used to own one, I decided against it seeing how aggressive they can be.

Looks like those lizards are Holaspis guentheri, they apparently go by a billion different common names, so you'll be better off searching for the latin name. From what little info I can gather, it looks like they need AT LEAST 18 inches of height, and preferably bigger than that.
You might have enough space for a mantis, provided you added a lot of perches since it's a glass tank.
Psst, you could always go with millipedes.

|horsedude||im sure u will find a care sheet for them on the interenet|

Well I did some digging.. Turns out Marbled Salamanders are illegal in Ca...SO I am back to square one.
I found some really cute little lizards at a local pet shop.. The girl there had no clue how to care for them... So Im hopeing I can dig up something on them..
They are called
Tanzania Flying Lizards.
Anyone have any clue how to care for them?
