    Just read through this thread, and dang. This setup has a great aesthetic and functional appeal. I might do a similar thing with a capensis or tokaiensis. Great work dude! Those macro shots are amazing too. What camera do you use?

    Thanks Dex. It is at room temps...so ranges from 18.5 C to 21C. Since it is in the basement, maybe a couple degrees off? But just open to room air and room temp. Around 50% humidity IIRC.

    Thanks . I use a Nikon D750 with a 105mm f2.8 micro nikkor lens.

    Noooo! Don't disassemble it! It looks great!!! Cephs make for some great small displays.

    I'm looking for those death cube acrylic boxes. The ones I've found so far are all too expensive to be the same ones used for commercially sold CP's. I kind of want to put my D. adelae in one of those, since it prefers being bagged on my gorw shelf, but Ziploc bags are eyesores.

    Since everyone is looking for a display case like that one, here's a few affordable ones I found on Amazon.

    https://www.amazon.com/Clear-Acrylic...r+display+case

    https://www.amazon.com/Ultra-Figurin...r+display+case

    And one that is a bit more stylish but also more expensive.
    https://www.amazon.com/Decorative-Cl...r+display+case

    This last one is a similar style to the bell jars that European plant collectors may have used to contain the first carnivorous specimens. If you have a Michael's near you, I suggest getting a glass fish bowl there. Could be interesting.
