    Great enclosures! I really like all the plants. What are you housing in these? The fish tank would be nightmare to clean though..

    Yeah, all natural plants in these setups. It takes alot more maintainence & with so much cover it is hard to get a decent look at the inhabitants some times. However I find that it is fine to just sit & stare at the setup itself without always seeing the fauna. If I find cheap aquariums I will snatch them up just to start again, it is very rewarding to get it just right but if you leave it unattended for any length of time there can be all sorts of issues. Certainly the hardest setups to maintain. These setups have been months in the making to get the right plants etc, if you get the heat lamps at just the right distance they heat without burning. In the 4 ft aquarium I have a Eastern Water Skink, he seems to absolutly love it in there, thanks Book for that one. The taller enclosure has my Pink Tongue Skink housed. Skinks are the best reptiles for these type of setups especially if they are from tropical, humid areas in nature. Thanks for checking it out guys, some other fantastic examples from Mr Nuts, Scleropages etc (just so you know I will be poaching ideas)

    Scleropages you sure have a knack for growing moss, I only put newspaper and sticks in my enclosures and look at you guys that have these natural set ups with complete wonder and envy.

    just think this thread should be bumped up and Shredapezzy should post pics of his other enclosures,

    also Shredapezzy I would think that that enclosure is to wet for a bearded dragon which I can see sitting on one of the branches
