Making a new tank for my hourglass tree frogs, thought some of you might be interested in seeing the process. By the way if people are interested in setups like this or even just the kits itself let me know I can hook you up or set up one for you.

Anyways here you go

Starting out with just a 10 gallon and vertical kit

Are those tops with the hinges made or did you buy them? I have a ton of 10 gallons lying around and thought this would be cool to try.

You mentioned kits in your post. I am interested in the cost of the kits.
