If you’re a reptile owner who takes the health, comfort, and happiness of your pets seriously, you know how important it is to create an environment that resembles what they would experience naturally in the wild. And as we all know, reptiles love rocks. They provide shelter, relaxation, and the stimulation needed to keep them active and curious. 

However, real rocks create a number of issues with larger aquariums. They can be hard to source, costly to ship, and a real pain when it comes to cleaning your enclosure. This is why some of the most dedicated reptile enthusiasts outfit their prized enclosures with products from Universal Rocks. As you’ll see in the video below, we have everything you’ll need to create a stunning, highly-realistic reptile enclosure that’s easy to maintain. 

When it comes to setting up your DIY reptile enclosure, the first place to start is with your background ledges. You’ll want to select ledges that are appropriately sized for your specific type of reptile to help mimic their natural environment while providing plenty of space to play, rest, or take cover. Lightweight reptile DIY ledges from Universal Rocks can be easily applied with spray foam, and complemented nicely with substrate, plants, moss, trees, vines, and many other reptile enclosure products.

If you’re starting from scratch, you’ll need to decide on how large of a tank you want. Reptile enclosure tanks come in a wide range of sizes, to accommodate everything from tiny lizards to larger snakes and reptiles. Always consider how you might want to expand in the future, and whether or not you’ll be adding new reptile pets to the habitat. Many choose to purchase a complete reptile DIY ledge kit to help save time and money, and then add to their enclosure as their needs evolve.
