do you get monsoons where you live? up here in Darwin it can rain non-stop for days, I want to make a pit like that but how would I stop it from flooding?

we get decent rain but they never fill they have shade cloth as a base and they drain well enough

Those are great! Do you cover the rest of the top with mesh or something? Love the last bluey, lovely colouration. Thanks for sharing :)

They are great pits. Were the poly tanks easy to cut and what did you use to cut them. What height did you cut them at?

Some of your blueys have great colours and patterns.

I'm looking at building an outdoor enclosure for my blueys again. In my old house I converted an old boat into my bluey pit.

nah the poly tanks were very easy to cut i used a reciprocating (sp?) saw and was very simple, for most i just cut them in thirds which would make them about 60cm high id say. I thought these would be the best thing as i rent and i can up and move them when we change house which has only happend once so far, thanks for the nice comments on the blueys they are part of a Reduced pattern line ive been breeding for a few years.

I think I will keep my eye out for any cheap used poly tanks now. Great simple idea, and as you said portable.
