New Keelback Enclosure.
I thought that i would post up some pics of the new enclosure that i just set up for my keelback.
Not the greatest pics as they are from my phone but still should give a good look. So happy with my keelback that I have decieded that I'm getting a second one now for a friend for him.
Also one question, is it safe to use the aquarium plant fertiliser with the snake in there?

that's awesome!1 Diamond Python (Heidi), 1 Darwin Carpet Python (Blaze), 3 Children's Pythons (Charlie, Eleanor & Boo Radley), 3 Black Soil Dragons (Icarus, Calypso & Rocket), 2 Central Netted Dragons (Triton & Sally), and 1 Corgidor (Bonnie).
Yes the fertiliser will be totally safe.
Thanks, im happy with how it turned out.
Thanks for that answer, was just wondering because other fertilisers are bad for snakes.
Thanks for that, im think im going to what abit before i do anything with the fertiliser. I dont want to do anything that could harm my little snake.

I'm in the process of designing my Keelback enclosure now. I have a stream to waterfall section that then goes into a smallish pond.
It's not as aquatic as many but it is still semi aquatic. I still have soil and ground cover to do this weekend.
Thanks for that.
Your pic didnt work james, i was going too do a set up like that but then i decieded to do this set up. I started getting frustrated trying to make my waterful i was going to do aswell.

Thats strange. The pic works for me on two pcs?
I like the idea of a lot of water but really wanted it in a large exoterra. They are the most interesting snakes in my collection. How big is your keelback?
I was finding it hard to get ideas of how to set it up. I kept googling semi aquatic and it wasn't until I came across the word Paludarium (swamp enclosure) I found some really helpful sights. I used acrylic sheets to bend and seperate the land from water. Its a challenging but rewarding setup. I hope to have it nearly complete this weekend. Will post pics of the finished product.

Maybe its because im on my phone atm. I like this set up because it is fairly low maintence with yhe filter doing most of the work. Mines is my favourite obe in my collection, im even getting a second one to eventually go in with him soon. Mines around the 35 cm mark atm, i think its pretty good with him only being around 5 months old.
Cant wait to see pics of your set up, will hopefully give me ideas for my next enclosure.

Make sure you put up the finished pics mate .Two wrongs don't make it right, but 2 rights will make a U-turn.
