Frog room.

Bakers with concrete floor allow us to roll out all racks in the event of emergency. Room is unfinished with 3 mil plastic covering ceiling and all walls and room is kept above 70% humidity with a mistking system.

Basement is halfway underground so temps never reach above 80. Lower tanks are 40 breeders with azureus, Leucs, cobalts and Terribilis.

Forgot about the fly rack. We also added a faucet bib so that watering and cleaning things is much easier!

Thanks again. The material is a PVC 4mm sheets in 4x8' sheets cut to size. I picked mine up at the local sign shop. Make a nice jig to cut it or else it will get away pretty easy.

Are those baker's rack shelves "upside down" ?

What's the advantage and do the plastic collars hold them just as well ?

That's just the way these are designed. I thought it was weird at first because all the ones I ever had before were the opposite. The Collars are still the same shape, but the racks are upside down.

The advantage I see is that few things fall off front or rear.
