    Starting another large lizard enclosure....this one for my new Tegu :) It is going to be 8' X 3.5' X 3.5'. Will be using some equipment from my last enclosure including a Mist King and UV with Arcadia bulbs. Will be run with an Apex controller, which currently runs my reef tank and Bearded Dragon enclosure. Need some opinions on what to do with the center cabinet? I was considering removing the doors and enclosing it with an acrylic door and using the whole cabinet as a hide, with a ramp leading down? Just not sure if I want (or need) the extra space as part of the enclosure. It would have to be completely sealed (I would probably use ceramic tile) and possibly have its own heat source. Seems like a lot of extra work. Any other ideas as to what to use it for? An underground lake ;)?? My original idea was to just store the water for the mister, and any other equipment I have but I have 8' of cabinet space.....I don't have that much equipment lol.
