    Hi so im working on a few rack systems atm for adult snakes. Mainly stimsons and woma pythons and i wanted to know what size tubs would you guys use for adult stimson and womas.
    Im currently gonna use tubs i found at bunnings.
    Size of that is 652mm × 413mm x 163mm
    (Pic for refence)
    Im thinking this is fine for stimmys but just thought i ask. 20200720_200855_compress66.jpg 20200720_201316_compress3.jpg had issues building this into shelf but this is it currently.

    Cheers

    End result.
    Removed the first one i uploaded because this style is way easier to build.

    Threaded 6mm bar sealed wood and aluminium tape cost me $200 to make the large one.

    Using a dimmer to control the heat with a 10a breaker for protection :)
    Will be doing some cable management soon.

    That style of rack is definitely becoming a popular one

    If you don’t mind me asking what it costs to buy the parts?

    I want to make an 80L bells tub rack
