Talking Pimped Viv Stack!!!

Hi all,

Right, i said i would post my latest viv build and some picture of my overall stack including this latest additon! Sorry this has taken so long but as you'll see in my second post ive been a little busy with another part of the stack which i hope you'll all like/be impressed with!!!

As you can see there is less structure in this one as we wanted more floor space as this one is for two beardies. we still stuck with the tiles for easy cleaning and hygiene, and also made the items removable in this viv so we could easily change it in time!





As you can see from the full stack view Pimp my viv (PMV) II has had its plants removed as they kept dying in the heat and the morio worms would disappear inside the pots!!!



As you may be able to see from the photos we adjusted the lighting as suggested by pendragon by having two UVB's tubes with reflectors, a UVA natural sun light for peak day sun and moon lighting to start and end the day.

Comments welcome!!

Default Electrical Control Panel

so here is the 2nd thing we have been working on.......

sorry the photos arent great but its a bit of a squeeze behind the vivs to take a photo square on! as you can see no plugs, multiplugs, timer plugs or excess wire.... literally one mains lead into the wall which powers everything!!!!!



here you can see the main control panel, the left side is the 240V supply with digital timers which gives me a possible 8 timed circuits allowing the automated on off of the lighting and heating systems. the right hand side is the 12V DC panel which powers the fans and moonlight system.



the next picture shows how the lower viv is attached to the main control panel.


At the moment we only have the two vivs running from it but as the stack expands we will be able to run everything off this one control panel!!!

Very nice Steph,

The viv's look nice and bright, and I like the texture you got with the resin and sand, any pics of that in progress?

As for the wiring...Nice!

That's very neat, do you have to move the stack to get to it or can you access them.
