Wanted to shared my highland chamber with you folks. I welcome suggestions, criticism and ideas. I built this from top to bottom out of wood, 1/4" plexiglass, metal, and glass.
The frame is cast iron. The table is wood with outdoor water resistent paint. I used spare treated wood in the back. I cut a square in the center of the table for tubing access or a future A/C event.
I sealed some thin plexiglass in a rectangular shape and laid it on top of the table to further protect it from water. Sides are lined with insulation and the front was left without. I wanted something that I could open and easily access yet keep humidity high. The top is a glass sheet for the lighting. A wooden rod runs across the top for tieing off fans and mister. I plan to hide the fogger better soon right now its in plane veiw. Everthing is on a timer including the mister, fogger, and lights. I use a cheap minifan to blow across the top of the chamber 24/7 and a 4" aquarium fan to blow throughout the chamber. I place 2 2 liter ice bottles in the chamber at night and let the fan blow over the bottles to disperse cool air. Temps range to 80F during day and 60F at night and humidity 65 to 90% respectively.
Lighting: one quad T5 + a quad PCF. Panda film was sealed to the inslulation with some special sealant for plastics on insulation.
The chamber is 100+ gallons

This chamber took a lot of tinkering, thought, mistakes, ideas, ideas for the future. I've convinced myself that I can build a bigger one one day fully automated with no frozen water bottles needed (knock on wood).
Others not pitchering still in transplant shock include tentac and spectabilis North Sumatra
I would like to see photos of everyone elses highland setups.
