    I wonder if it's worth considering ones like mine? The only reason I mention this here is because I found with my mantids that they prefer the ceiling and a lot of horizontall space in the critter keepers has ended up being wasteful.

    Someone put up an amazing tutorial somewhere here about burning holes in the sides of similar tanks to glue mesh on and I suspect you could do the same here but these are perfect. $5 for the larger containers, $3 for the smaller ones (I keep my slings in these!) from KMart, the perspex is fantastic! I do admit I copied Felix but his ones are from Howard's Storage World, his builds are amazing aesthetically.

    I have not seen those for sale before.
    I hate using kritter keppers exept for adult Archimantis females, as they are good for breeding.
    For juviniles we recicle large round honey containers(will post pic) and cut a large hole in the lid for mesh.

    Yeah I've done that before, my wife's mom gave me some honey containers to use the last time we were down home.
    2 Eastern Blue tongue's(1M&F), 1x Elo, 1x Lio (my 2nd wild
    caught scorp), 1 x C. tropix, RIP 1x 10cm Female Pseudo-crassipes (1st
    wild caught T), 1x Woma Python, a few sp of phasmid & a couple of other things.

    whoops! my bad! cool - you will be able to breed them if the male doesn't die before she becomes adult and sexually receptive (takes 1-2 wks sometimes for a female to begin producing eggs and pheromones). id say heat her slightly and power-feed her till she moults!
