After being inspired by some of the backgrounds I saw on here and wanting a new project to get stuck into i decided that I'd have a go at building a fake rock background for my largest vivarium. The viv measures 52" L x 27 X W x 36" H and previously housed a 6ft boa which has since been moved...

I'm in the process of creating a fake build for my corn snake vivarium. I plan to create a tree with branches coming from the trunk for the snake to climb up etc.
My question is, what do you guys use to put over the expanding foam? Do you just paint it or do you cover it in grout...
I have just had a "scammer" try to get money out of me.
This was a classic scam and frankly I could see it from the first email, this was done via email, probably picked up off preloved but they will try from anywhere.
I was not sure where best to post a warning but felt it best to warn any...
Hi, I want to get some fake plants to put in my lizard vivs and the snake tubs. I would buy the ones from reptile shops but I think they are quite expensive for what they are.
I have read that you can buy decent ones from dunelm. Are they good quality and good value for money?
want alot of fake plants, now obviously if your wanting shop prices for them then this thread will be pointless because i could goto ebay for that, im just asking incase anyone has a load of spare ones they would be willing to let go for cheap!

I'm currently redesigning my boa's viv interior for a big face lift. So at the moment I'm scouting for anything in terms of fake branches or even tree's that can support the full weight of an adult BCI. I'm open to any suggestions for DIY work but not a very crafty person but hey, I'll have a...
I have recently finished my first fake rock structure build, and I have been researching various sealants on this site and I think "Thompsons water seal" sounds like the most viable option for me.
This is due to me doing a mini build in the past for my bearded dragon which I...
Hi all, just thought we would share our viv with you from start to eventually finish.

This will be our first BD...
i got another simple and easy to make tutorial
a fake tree stump
first get a hollow tube for the base
i coated this in grout for extra water resistance
then using expanding foam create some roots
let the first ones dry and then add some more if needed
hey, i want one of these
but was wondering if you could redo the tut on how you sculpted/created the dino skeleton,
either that or i'll pay you for something simular
hope you dont mind me borrowing your pics?!
My mourning gecko trio are due to be moved to their forever home. I got a 45x45x60 exo (seems a bit massive, but I will eventually have about 8 or so geckos in it when they decided to lay) and following ch4dg's tutorials/guides (which are awesome! keep doing them), particularly...
Being a perfectionist, whenever I see threads on here that are "rock backgrounds" made from polystyrene, grout and painted/drybrushed I can't help thinking that they all look pretty similar - and not a huge amount like rock :lol2:
I needed to find a way to make a rock wall background for my...
