    I'm a bit ahead of the game since my T is still just a wee sling but I went ahead and setup a new enclosure for when it gets a bit too big for its small starter enclosure. I anticipate it will spend its juvenile stage in here before moving to a nice "showcase" style Exoterra enclosure as an adult. I think I will add a fake plant or fake greenery of some kind just to finish off the look but I like how it has turned out. Setting these enclosures up is a lot of fun.

    I like the sticks and their arrangement.

    What substrate are you using?

    I agree that creating little worlds for these guys to live in is a fun task.

    I used a 50/50 mix of ecoearth and plain old top soil as the main substrate, then I put a thin layer of terrarium sand mixed with fine crushed rocks to give it the coarse desert sand look.

    Looks good. I have a couple of AF gbbs in the large size of that enclosure. The feeding door is very convenient.

    The enclosure looks very user friendly. I like the built in feeder port and transparent sides as well as clear visibility through a skylight door on top.

    The decor looks great, absolutely wonderful.
