 Frilled Dragon Container video

I put up a video of my new FD container setup. Low power usage, 80w in lighting total and an 80W heater only on when needed.

Container is an Animal Plastics AP25. Made from CDPVC, it can be completely sterilized with a steamer, unlike any melamine containers, which break down quickly. It is also relatively lightweight.

Please feel free to post any questions, observations, or criticisms. One can never know it all :)

Thanks! It seems like I did put some thought into it in advance, and it helped.

I did save on shipping by ordering 2 containers. A lot of the prices I listed were show rates.

Finally started assembly on the other container, the AP35.
