    Go to the Dollar store and buy a turkey baster or two. One of those essential tools.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Essential! You can see my shiny new turkey baster there in the bottom center on the pile of Toy Riot address labels!

    Jimmy,
    I'm working on a sliding front Vivarium myself, and then I will convert the one shown above to the same thing so I'd definitely love to see what you did!

    i only actually water individual pots about twice a week it is a highland nep. terrarium and i have a few heliamphoras in there as well

    Ah, that makes more sense now. My fogger does the same thing. I stopped using it and bought a humidifier. I still want to use it for something, just haven't found the right application yet.

    Doorstop!


    I was fooled into buying one of those crummy foggers too, back before 2000 when they were "new technology" in the reptile hobby. I won't tell you exactly HOW MUCH I paid for mine but it was well over $100 and it worked about as well for as long as most peoples experiences with them. Maybe a week then never made a puff again.

    I then bought a cheap $35 ultrasonic humidifier from the pharmacy that held 2 gallons of water and it ran 24/7 for six years straight! lol

    LOL! I got a ultrasonic humidifier about a week after getting my fogger too.

    [/COLOR]just ordered the glass it was easier to assemble than i thought it would be just need to make good beads of silicone at each seam so you'll get a water tight seal, once mine was assembled i cleaned off the excess on the inside and applied another fairly large bead of silicone and smoothed it out with my finger, use an aquarium for reference
    make a nice smooth finish this will be your water tight seal
