Correlophus ciliatus Vivarium, almost finished.

After 3 months and close to a grand... the big Viv in the living room is almost done.



It started out as just a 3 foot x 3 foot x 18inch deep Exo-Terra Vivarium.

Then the back got covered in Waterfall Expanding Foam.


The foam has a wooden mask mounted on the right. The mask in turn has a pipe siliconed in to the mouth as the outlet for a waterfall.




Which then got covered in silicone with a mixture of Coco fibre and sphagnum moss pressed into it.



Eventually, after the waterfall was set up, a huge lump of wood was put in, and it was planted up...



I just hope the little buggers appreciate it...

I thought you'd lost your account to a bot. I have no idea what that word says in the title.

Re: Correlophus ciliatus Vivarium, almost finished.

Here you go Dawson.



The big secret of the waterfall is it's made from a lucky reptile waterfall kit, some old tubing from a water cooling attempt on an old PC, a wooden amsk from ebay, and a cat litter tray from Pets at Home. Just has gravel and pebbles in the bottom and the pump was boxed off by cutting a hole in the lid of an old cricket tub.

Siliconed some bogwood under the mask for the water to run down. job done.
Got the idea and a lot of help from a facebook group called reptile and amphibian bioactive setups.

It's the latin name of the lizards.

Most people call them Crested Geckos

Re: Correlophus ciliatus Vivarium, almost finished.



Absolutely stunning. Fantastic work there, MisterW! This is the kinda viv that I'd be looking to do for Atlas (Royal Python) but the waterfall is sadly not a good addition for a snake viv so it'll be something I'd need to look into for when I get a frogs/lizards as I'd love to set up a viv with a waterfall and small pond too.

And those geckos, awwww *squeeee*

Re: Correlophus ciliatus Vivarium, almost finished.

I just did the heavy lifting. Mina did the background and planned it all out.
Then again, they are her geckos. My viv starts in a month or two... for Tokay Geckos.
