Hi folks! I've finally found some parts I've long needed for building a custom landscape vivarium which I didn't know where to get until now. I found them at the most unlikely place: Rockler's woodworking shop. I'm going to go buy them on Thursday if they're available in the local retail shop otherwise I'll order online.
The parts in consideration:
Here is a free swinging (no drill) glass door hinges for 1/4" glass panels:
Here's the low profile magnet catches to go with that (I would use a magnet set on top and bottom)
And what seems for me the creme de la creme, the "dutch" sliding door track that holds two 1/4" glass panels:
If you were going to build a custom vivarium of 4 ft W x 3 ft H x 2 ft D with most of the whole front as glass (24" W x 24" H doors if swinging and 24" x 26" panels if sliding) would you use the sliding track or the magnet/hinge setup? Could the magnet/hinge setup "go bad" in a very high humidity environment as a jungle viv with possible waterfall?
My 56 gal viv so far only has one female Anole (hatched out of an egg hidden in a plant pot a year or so ago) but I was thinking if I get the new one setup and stabilized nicely by mid summer or fall I'd like to get a group of dart frogs or some other sort of small, colorful & singing frogs in there. Any species suggestions for these criterion I could do some research on?
