Finished fixing his new house. Had to completely strip out the old crap and got it refinished inside. still need some decorations but it is functional now.Overall dimentions are 3' wideX2' deepX6'high with 3 levels 2 uvb lights and 1 basking light.
got the cabinet from Craig's List. I was previously used as a reptile enclosure (not sure). I had to completely gut it out and redo the interior since it had old peel and stick tile and lots of nasty caulking in it. Thing I like is it has doors front and back for easy access. I added wheels on it and it rolls easly. Can be opened front and back for easy cleaning. I think all in all I got near $250 in it. Had an XL dog crate for him before but it took up a lot of room. He is still getting used to it but seems to like climbing around. Just need to add some more decorations to make it more homey for him. There is a rubbermaid tub on the bottom level. Not sure what that was used for before but now it is his bed with a cat bed in the bottom and a fleece blankie for cover. He really likes his bed the best otherwise he prefers to be out and about roaming or basking in the window.
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.
Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
