The Great Big List of Adult Enclosures!

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hi everyone,
The question, “Hey, where can I buy a custom enclosure for my beardie?” tends to pop up on the forum on a weekly basis. While this is obviously the perfect place to ask such a question, it’s too hard to list every single option whenever someone asks. Sometimes people even respond with reviews of enclosures they’ve purchased… Which is awesome… Until a few days go by and the thread is forgotten and forever lost.

So to end that cycle, I’m going to (with help from you, of course) create a list of every online enclosure option available, and provide reviews as well as customer photos.

For the sake of cleanliness, I’ll ask you guys to request new enclosures for the list by PM only. I would like to keep the discussion in this thread down to reviews and questions only. This way, new-comers don’t have to sift through 100, “add this” posts to find any sort of useful information. Let’s start then,

The CrossFire Enclosure: (okay, you can't just order this one, so maybe it doesn't belong. But this is the DIY enclosure you see everyone talking about, it might be just what you need)

For the record, I have no affiliation with any of the above enclosure companies. Some enclosures may need further modification (airflow, lighting etc) contact your builder to discuss anything before hand. Take the usual precautions when ordering online, yada-yada-yada... not my fault if any of the above companies give you trouble, but let us all know if they do!

Again, PM me with any enclosures you'd like to see added, and PLEASE post any pictures/reviews of your custom enclosure. Thanks!

Thank you! This needs to be stickied, not everybody has the ability to build their own enclosures and I foresee this being extremely helpful to other new people like me. :)

Hi.

This is a great idea! I agree: this list should be stickied.

I agree. Stickied. Very nice collection/list of enclosures that are good for adult beardies.

I don't sticky often, but this is extremely relevant to the Enclosures forum and a fairly simple topic. I may have to lock it after a while, so that the Sticky doesn't just cause it to become muddled.

^Thanks for the sticky, I hope this thread can help a lot of people in need of a new enclosure :D

I've added reviews for a couple of plastic enclosures. I'm doing a fair amount of research to find relevant info for beardie owners, but it's hard to come by. Sure hope people will share their thoughts on their own vivs. I'm in the market myself so any info helps me as well!
