Insanity.

Figured I'd share my current project.

It's a 10' by 2' vivarium, 6 feet tall. Subdivided into f 2'2'6' cells. For dart frogs and day geckos.

Kessils, mistking, 90gpd RODI, neptunecontroller, the works basically.

Here are a few photos as of now.

Ten gallon fish tank for size reference.



Me for size reference.

I'm very interested... following this thread!
A few questions.
Are those tables going to be sturdy enough to hold all that weight? Any steel reinforcement?
Also is there any kind of vertical bracing for the tanks?

If those are acrylic make sure they are very reinforced or the warping with be an issue. Especially the doors, they are typically unsupported and in a vivarium environment will warp to the point you can't close them. I built acrylic vivariums for years and have a lot of experience in this area, just wanted you to be aware of this. It happens because one side (the inside) is exposed to a very high humidity environment and the outside is usually very low. This causes one side to absorb significantly more moisture and curve away from the high humidity. This isn't a problem with aquariums because they are highly reinforced to deal with the water pressure.
